Bert Gill recently purchased the Sovereign Restaurant. There have been complaints that he was inconsiderate in the release of employees at the restaurant. The decision to release these employees was very difficult and emotional. They were given the opportunity to reapply and many have been rehired.
I am not a resident of Gainesville and have missed the opportunity to enjoy the food and hospitality of Lupe and Elmo Moser. The style and tradition of the Sovereign Restaurant, for over 30 years, should be remembered and appreciated. Bert Gill is now the new owner and has chosen to remodel the restaurant to meet his dream. A more modern decor was chosen to complement his cuisine.
Should you choose not to patronize his restaurant, you will miss the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal in a beautiful environment. Bert is a dedicated chef, entrepreneur, husband, father to three children, and son. I know because I am his very proud father.
