breaking: bummer â?? graze and sanctuary diner close.

by

It's all over the internets so it must be true: We hear Graze and Sanctuary Diner have closed, high-profile victims of These Shitty Economic Times. (The Beacon, in the same building but managed by a different company, is still open.)

It's especially confounding considering that both kitchens are run by Jephanie Foster, who seems to be Orlando's unluckiest talent. After closing her own restaurant, Blue Bistro & Grill, and then the joint venture Midnight Blue, chef Foster popped up at Graze and eventually oversaw the conversion of Fifi's Patisserie into the Sanctuary Diner, a project that seemed especially informed by her personal taste. We're curious where she'll turn up next.
