Area 31 Closed for Now -- Don't Worry, Just Some Legionnaires' Disease
|Seafood bolognese? Not this week.|
It was also just reported that one of the hotel guests who contracted Legionnaires' died -- in September! Yet this was not noted by our daily paper of record or by the evening news. Guess nobody wanted to hurt the tourist trade.
Ironically, the hotel installed the filtration system in order to enhance the quality of the drinking water, and Area 31 takes its name and sources much of its product from Fishing Area 31, a clean, ecologically sustainable swath of Western Central Atlantic Ocean.
Area 31 opened to rave reviews and garnered notice as one of Esquire's Best New Restaurants of the Year.
