DELRAY BEACH — Outdoor shopping center Delray Marketplace has a new addition: Popular Miami-based eatery and cocktail bar Batch Gastropub.

The pub at Delray Marketplace, west of the city at 14851 Lyons Road, held a soft opening, which drew a crowd of more than 4oo, on Sunday, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

The drinks are made with blends of fresh ingredients and spirits, some of which are marinated for months before they’re served.
