Le Coq au Vin, one of Orlando’s oldest and most iconic restaurants, has closed.
Current owner and chef Reimund Pitz said that the French restaurant served its last dinner Saturday night, and said in a text message my “wife and I are ready for the next chapter of our lives.” He said the closing was “bittersweet.”
Pitz and his wife, Sandy, bought the restaurant in the A-frame house on South Orange Avenue from longtime owners Louis and Magdelena Perrotte in November of 2008. (The structure was a model for a business selling houses.) In a separate message, Pitz said that he will be selling the property.
This is a developing story.
