Is Brooklyn Water Bagel misleading you after being ordered shut?

Business permitted to reopen Monday following reinspection

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – According to state records, the Brooklyn Water Bagel location at 2877 Stirling Road in Hollywood was ordered shut last week based on a complaint.

Roaches were found in several places and the location was immediately ordered to close its doors.

But, if you walked up to the restaurant after the order, a sign in the window said they were closed for “maintenance issues” and the bright orange state sticker seemed to be hidden behind a garbage box.

Records indicate the inspector had been back twice since the initial closure, and not only did the violations still exist, but roaches were found in other locations, including in the bagel baking area.

The average visit is twice a year.
