The owner of Al’s Pizza, Flying Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar, COOP 303 and Mezza Luna Ristorante has taken over the closed South Kitchen & Spirits restaurant location in South Avondale.

Al Mansur, through 3638 Park Street LLC, acquired the property through a certificate of sale for a recorded price of  $1.622 million, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

Mansur bought the 6,417-square-foot restaurant on 0.57 acres at 3638 Park St. at Park and Dancy streets, next to Restaurant Orsay.

“I love the location with the proximity to St. Johns Avenue,” Mansur said Nov. 29 by email.

“This location has everything going for it with plenty of parking, which is hard to find around the Avondale area,” he said.

Another benefit is next door. “Having exceptional Restaurant Orsay as a neighbor makes it so much better,” Mansur said.
