Channel 7 WSVN story on Ouzo's Miami Beach

Without getting to all the details, it was a "Help me Howard" story about how FPL started upgrades to powerlines right out front of their location. The entire intersection is closed and with the construction their outside seating is all but eliminated and their business has dropped off 75% (per the owners in the story) With $30,000 a month in rent, they are struggling! Landlord trimmed $3,000 but still owe 23!
Knowing how slow construction is in Miami, who knows how long this will effect them.
They are a great greek restaurant and I hope you all will visit them for the first time or again. I will be there tomorrow night for sure!
The video is not posted yet, but check www.wsvn.com later tonight or tomorrow for the video. If someone doesn't do it before me, I will post it as it becomes available.
This reminds me of Lincoln Road when entire sidewalks were tore up and some small businesses had to fold because they couldn't survive. Granted it is upgrading the area, such as what was done for Lincoln Road, but you wish there was a better way to go about it logistically.
Ouzo's Greek Taverna & Bar
1766 Bay Rd, Miami Beach - (305) 604-0008
have you been to the new Greek place that opened in their old location? Any good and do you think they opened there for hopes of a "by association" mentality of people thinking its the same place if you weren't in the "know" and thought they were temporarily closed?
By the way, here is the link to the transcript on their website:
