Blue Moon Fish Co., known for their expansive waterfront buffet brunches, has closed for an extensive remodel.
The restaurant, located on Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's Intracoastal Waterway, closed on September 22 for about a month.
Chef Bryce Statham explained the reason behind the total renovation of the restaurant that's been serving Broward County for nearly two decades. "We have always strived to give our customers the absolute best food and experience in everything we do. After 17 years, we decided that investing in a full renovation of the restaurant was the next and best step in not only maintaining, but exceeding, the standard of excellence we provide our customers."
The total redo includes new flooring and lighting fixtures in a more modern setting. Decor features include chrome "sputnik" lamps, blue and green upholstery, and a wrap-around bar with an immersive bottle display. The restaurant is also adding an oyster bar.
The eatery is expected to celebrate its grand reopening on October 19, just in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and, later on, the Holiday Boat Parade. Blue Moon is also posting daily pictures on its Facebook page so you can track the progress of the remodel.
