When the owners of the Lost Parrot sold their building and retired in April, the two-story, pistachio-colored building sat lifeless on one of downtown Mount Dora’s most trafficked intersections, Donnelly Street and Fourth Avenue.
The prime location will soon be home to a new eatery: Piscosour Restaurant, Bar & Grill is expected to open on September 1.
Piscosour will be significantly larger than owner Jorge Bracamonte’s existing Peruvian restaurant, Mr. Cerbiche, in downtown Mount Dora. That establishment was previously located on Old 441 near Eudora Road in Mount Dora.
The new restaurant will occupy a 4,500 square-foot, historic building in the heart of downtown. Prior to its many years as the The Lost Parrot, Frosty Mug and Eduardo’s, the building was a gas station and a bus station.
Pisco Sour is the name of a traditional South American cocktail made of pisco, a Peruvian liquor, fresh lime juice, syrup, ice, egg white and bitters.
The new restaurant will add to downtown Mount Dora’s late night destinations by offering live music and remaining open until 2 a.m.
