Sarasota, FL (Tuesday, September 6, 2016) – Geraldine and Christophe Coutelle, proprietors of Lolita Tartine Restaurant and C’est La Vie Restaurant & Bakery in Sarasota, Florida, announce that the popular French restaurant, Lolita Tartine, is undergoing some small renovations during the month of September but reopens on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, at 8:30am.
“We are updating the menus, making some small repairs, and perhaps putting on a fresh coat of paint,” explains Christophe Coutelle. “We look forward to reopening on October 4th, especially with all the recent activity and development in the Rosemary District and in downtown Sarasota.” The Coutelles are also proprietors of C’est La Vie Restaurant and Bakery in downtown Sarasota and spent most of the summer overseeing the launch of a second C’est La Vie Restaurant and Bakery at The Shoppes at UTC in Bradenton on September 12, 2016. “It has been a fun project but I look forward to focusing on Lolita Tartine in September,” says Geraldine Coutelle.
C’est La Vie is an authentic French restaurant, bakery, and café located in downtown Sarasota. Christophe and Geraldine Coutelle created C’est La Vie in 1997 after having moved to the US in 1996. C’est La Vie is an award-winning and popular location with indoor and outdoor dining, open for breakfast, lunch, and – in November 2016 – dinner. Praised by Condé Nast Traveler in 2016, C’est La Vie received national attention for its crêpes and fresh croissants. C’est La Vie Sarasota is open Monday to Thursday 7:30am- 6:00pm, and Friday and Saturday 7:30am-7:30pm. The Coutelle’s also own and operate another restaurant, Lolita Tartine, in the Rosemary District in downtown Sarasota.
