Fine dining restaurant reopening in downtown Ocala

A fine dining restaurant that has moved into new digs in downtown Ocala will celebrate its grand re-opening this weekend.

Katya Vineyards will officially reopen at 11 E Silver Springs Boulevard on Sunday, December 31, taking over the former home of Morevino.

Last week, the restaurant held a series of soft openings in anticipation of its opening, which is a ticketed event to celebrate the New Year.

Katya Vineyards previously occupied the space at 101 E Silver Springs Boulevard before temporarily closing in July. That space is now the new home of Symmetry Coffee Company.

The space has undergone a complete transformation over the past several months to fit the restaurant’s fine dining theme.

The interior features large crystal chandeliers, ornate frames, and a series of modern, elegant fixtures.

Known for its gourmet cuisine, the restaurant says it will feature an updated menu when it opens.

The business is one of several that has opened or closed in downtown Ocala over the past few months.

On December 19, Molly Maguire’s permanently closed its location after nine years in business.

On December 4, Mellow Mushroom opened its long-awaited location at 2 W Fort King Street.

On December 1, Karishma Boutique celebrated the grand opening of its women’s clothing boutique.

Before that, The Corkscrew closed its doors after a multi-year run. That location is now occupied by The Venue.

In October, Symmetry Coffee Company reopened in the former space occupied by Katya Vineyards.

Over the summer, The Keep Downtown closed its bar after multiple decades in business dating back to its previous ownership and name (Ocala Wine Experience).

Next door to that bar, District Kitchen and Bar opened its newly constructed restaurant around the same time.

In the past five years, downtown Ocala has seen the openings of at least 20 new businesses. Many of those businesses are approaching their five-year anniversaries, including Sayulita Taqueria, Black Sheep on Broadway, Bank Street, and Big Hammock Brewery, all of which opened in 2019.
