Zora Grille Closed

Zora Grille, the Persian restaurant in Altamonte Springs that was reviewed here recently, is closed. The restaurant, at 1370 E. Altamonte Drive in Altamonte Springs, opened in 2015.

A note on the Zora Grille Facebook page on Thursday stated: “ Due to external hardships at this time we will be closing our doors for now until further notice. Thank you everyone for your patronage and kindness!”

But Tamara Khan, who co-owned the restaurant with her father, Reza, and was the restaurant’s chef, said by phone Monday morning that the closing is permanent. She expects the free-standing building to be leased.

Khan would not give any further reason for the sudden closing, only to say it was for personal reasons that could not be resolved. When asked specifically if it had anything to do with anti-Iranian sentiments in the community, Khan said there was never any such problem.

“Our customers are great,” she said.
