On Saturday, Ocala-News.com reported that the business was permanently closed.

Hours after the story was published, the company’s website was updated to show that the business would in fact close temporarily, not permanently.

Owned and operated by David and Patricia Sokol, as well as their daughter Katherine, the family business has been a mainstay in downtown Ocala since 2010 and has gained recognition over the years for its award-winning wines and gourmet food.

The ever-changing menu features a variety of exquisite dishes with quality ingredients made by executive chef Tony Deras. Those dishes include a caviar menu, Ahi tuna, and specialties like Chilean sea bass, Wagyu filet mignon, and lobster tails.
