Chef Angelo Elia Celebrates the Grand Opening of Angelo Elia the Bakery Bar


On Wednesday, July 20th, acclaimed Italian-born Chef and Restaurateur Angelo Elia welcomed Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, Oakland Park Mayor Tim Lonergan and Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca, as well as other local notables and community members, to celebrate the grand opening of his newest concept – Angelo Elia The Bakery Bar.

    Excellent pastry and great service, BUT very erratic hours. I went to Kaluz for dinner with a part of four. We purposely did not have desert with the intention of going to Angelo Elia Bakery upon arrival at 8:30pm it was closed. Not closing CLOSED. Lights out. There were people pulling in and leaving, a person was sitting on the curb in the parking lot and said they closed early because it was slow.
    That is not an excuse. Their hours are open till 10pm 7 days a week. Then you stay open.
    We were disappointed as were many other people pulling in to only realize it was closed.
    BAD BUSINESS. When all of your patrons have to drive to your business you have the responsibility to maintain advertised hours. It might have been slow at 8pm, dinner time but people go out after dinner or from another restaurant for coffee and desert.
    A lot of money lost, and a lot of ill will gained.
