A Florida shopping center that says Ariel Quiros owes $86,721 in back rent for his now-shuttered Key Biscayne restaurant has received approval to throw him out.
Quiros, facing state and federal investor fraud lawsuits stemming from developments at Jay Peak Resort in Vermont, did not contest the move to clear out his leased space in the shopping center that was home to his restaurant, Lisboa Grill.
Galleria of Key Biscayne Inc., the shopping center’s owner, filed a motion in the federal case against Quiros, seeking to retake the space. A federal judge granted that request recently. The Miami businessman and Jay Peak owner signed a seven-year lease on March 28, 2011, for his restaurant at 328 Crandon Boulevard in Key Biscayne.
The filing said Quiros owes $86,721 in back rent and other expenses. Quiros, according to the filing, agreed to “surrender” his lease and “abandon” any rights he had under it. The rent for the 1,656-square-foot space, according to the 2011 lease, was $7,615 a month. The rate increased 4 percent annually.
