It is with tremendous sorrow and deep regret that I tell you that our beloved restaurant has fallen victim to the economic downturn due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the terrible impact it is having on restaurants across the USA.  On Saturday, August 15, 2020 we served our last meal and have permanently closed our beloved restaurant. I wanted to reach out to our followers and loyal patrons and let you know that it has been our honor and pleasure to cook and serve your meals but more importantly, you became our friends and an extension of our family. We love the Gainesville community and have received so much love and support from all of you these last 12 years. This has been an extremely difficult decision we had to make. Michael & I will greatly miss you.  As we embark on the next chapter of our lives, we wish you all the best with good health for the future.


Love from our family to yours,

Chef Michael and Frances
