Get ready you guys!!  This is really huge!!

After 22 years of operating Flagstaff's BEST Fine Dining Restaurant, Frank and Nancy have finally made the decision to sell The Cottage.  We were able to accommodate a record number of diners up until Sunday the 19th and then had two lovely Open Houses where we sold a good bit of our wine inventory. . . GREAT TIMES!!!

It has been absolutely overwhelming, amazing and remarkable at the outpouring of well wishes since we announced we are selling The Cottage Place Restaurant. Everyone has expressed their disappointment and sadness, but in the same breath their well wishes for the new adventures and relaxation in retirement.  We are very humbled and thankful.

We are delighted to announce that Scott Heinonen, former Chef/Owner at Tinderbox Kitchen, has purchased The Cottage and he is excited for the opportunity to carry on the legacy that we have created over the past 22 years.  Scott will reopen The Cottage in April, serving dinner seven nights per week.  His culinary passion is deeply rooted in cooking with the seasons and his ever-changing menu offerings will emanate this philosophy.  We totally support Scott and wish him all the best as he carries on providing the same excellent quality of hospitality and cuisine that our customers have come to expect.
If you are holding a Cottage Place gift certificate they will be honored by the new owner until their expiration date.  If you have a gift certificate for a cooking class its value is $60. If your gift certificate expires between February 20th and April 20th the full value will be extended for use until May 20th.

We have sold dozens of Cottage Place Flavors cookbook over the last few weeks.  If you still do not have one you may order one at www.cottageplacecookbook.com.  Remember that the "personalization" that is offered when you order is who/how you would like FRANK to address the recipient.  THANKS!

As part of the sale, we will retain the email list AND the new owner, Scott, will also have access to that list.  So, if you currently receive our emails we will stay in touch periodically, especially if / when we start teaching cooking classes again. Our emails will come from info@cottageplace.com. If friends of yours do NOT get our email they may go to www.cottageplace.com and sign up for future emails.
You may also contact us at any time through our email which is info@cottageplace.com
We look forward to seeing you around town and perhaps we will have more than just a couple of minutes of chatting while you are at the restaurant  -  we would love that!

Scott will be in touch with you in the next few weeks about his exciting plans for the restaurant.  We know that you will all support him as he takes the restaurant into its next chapter.

BYE for now and we will be in touch after we have had a few days of relaxation. . . and been able to read through all the wonderful comments you left in our "memory" books.
