Wasabi In Dartmouth Re-Opens And Is Also Up For Sale
The neon "open" sign is back to light, signalling the once-popular sushi and Chinese restaurant that had resolved its health code violations which closed the State Road location last month.
According to South Coast Today.com, the sprawling parking lot was far from full around lunchtime Wednesday afternoon, and there was another sign in front of the restaurant's entrance — a realtor's sign.
Wasabi in Dartmouth is now up for sale, and an online listing by Weichert Realtors states that the owner, Sau Wah Lam, is asking for $1.4 million for the commercial property.
According to the town's assessor database, "the property was appraised at a value of $613,700 this year."
At a meeting on June 15, the town's Board of Health ordered the restaurant to be closed due to a long list of "serious and disturbing" health code violations. A dirty refrigerator, moldy roof tiles, and uncovered food in the walk-in cooler were among the violations.
On June 16, the restaurant had a sign on its door informing customers the location had closed and was "under construction until further notice."
After passing a Board of Health inspection earlier this month, the restaurant was given clearance to open.
