According to reps for the restaurant, the restaurant’s lease is up, leading to a decision to shutter the restaurant after 20 years of service. The not-so-bad news will find the week ending with four guest appearances from alumni of Pinot’s kitchen, including appearances from Octavio Becerra and Walter Manzke. Pinot Bistro will also offer Patina-related giveaways to one lucky customers each night, including a dinner for four at Ray’s and a magnum of bubbly signed by Joachim Splichal and staff.
