After almost seven years of being a landmark in Winter Park, Leo’s Kitchen has closed indefinitely.

Leo’s, an American food restaurant and bar located in Cooper Creek Square, in its current iteration has only been around a few years, but quickly became known for its globally inspired fare and fun, sports bar atmosphere. Its last day was April 28.

Owner Leo Shukan announced the closing and thanked the Winter Park community for their support in an April Facebook post to many saddened patrons.

Prior to rebranding as Leo’s Kitchen, Shukan operated an Italian and French cuisine restaurant known as DaVinci in the same location, which he opened in 2012.
