Old Sovereign Restaurant


Old Sovereign Restaurant, Gainesville, Fl.

Chef Elmo and his wife Lupe Moser have owned and operated the Sovereign Restaurant in downtown Gainesville for 25 years. The Mosers opened the restaurant in 1976 until December 2006, in a renovated carriage house in downtown Gainesville, whose old world atmosphere reflected the continental cuisine that was Elmo's specialty.

This building was built in 1910. It was purchased by Chef Bert Gill, in late 2006 and remodeled and now called Ti Amo.
