DELRAY BEACH — The Green Owl served loyal patrons for 33 years before closing the doors of its Delray Beach restaurant in July. It can now continue to do so, as its new location in downtown Delray will open Tuesday, May 16.

The diner-style eatery, a favorite of locals known for serving affordable dishes in an otherwise pricey downtown, will open its doors at 11 SE 4th Ave., in a smaller space across the street from its former Atlantic Avenue-facing location, according to building owners Menin Development.

The rent was hiked on Green Owl owner David Gensman just before the old location closed, he told The Palm Beach Post in July.

The building sold in 2014 to Delray Beach-based Menin Development, which offered the Green Owl a space in a building it owns just east on Southeast Fourth Avenue, although the restaurant will no longer face Atlantic Avenue.

The Atlantic Avenue space once occupied by the Green Owl is currently under construction to become a Capital One Café, which will offer banking services, coffee and free Wi-Fi.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Green Owl will be held May 15 at 4 p.m. and is open to the public. The restaurant’s hours will be Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

It will be closed Mondays.
