New Restaurant Alert

Coup Des Tartes to Reopen Next Friday in New Location -- Here's a Peek Inside

It's been 23 months since Coup des Tartes owner Ron Pacioni found out his 18-year-old restaurant would be torn down to make room for a car dealership parking lot. It's been 21 months since he found a new at 1725 East Osborn Road to move into. And it's been eight months since the restaurant closed its doors at 4626 North 16th Street to prepare to move.

And though that might sound like a long timeline to you, for Pacioni the past two years have been "a consistent rush."

"To have to do something of this magnitude off the cuff was . . . a struggle," Pacioni says.
