Zo' long

Famed West End restaurant Zola is closing its doors after 13 years. From Bites:
The chef [Debra Paquette] came to Nashville from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and her husband [Ernie] grew up on the shores of Cape Cod. She said they've both been longing to get back to the ocean, and with their two sons grown, the time was right to take a plunge. "You don't know what's on the other side until you go for it," she said. "I want to look out my back door and see the big blue."
