Opened in 1999 by Michael and Lory Jones, the restaurant was originally located in a log cabin-style building at 900 S Kelly Ave., now occupied by Jo's Pizza.Lottinvilles moved to its final location at 801 Signal Ridge Rd, in the fall of 2008, taking over the space left by Cascata.

The Joneses  are the founders of Flatire Burgers in Edmond and veterans of the local restaurant industry. They met in 1985 while working at the Greystone Restaurant in Edmond. After several years there, both moved on to work at Val Gene's, even opening a Shorty Small's restaurant in Branson, Mo., for that company.

Val Gene's connected them with Peter and Sheree Holloway, for whom they helped open Cafe 501. They then purchased the Classen Grill during a critical transition its history before building their first concept from the ground up in 1999.

Lottinvilles was known for fresh-baked breads, steaks, chops and chickens cooked over a wood fire long before it was fashionable. The menu included flourishes inspired from around the globe.

Lottinvilles joins J. Bruner's at The Haunted House in closing just after  New Year Day. The concept, which served this market well for nearly 20 years, will be missed and its contributions will be remembered fondly like so many others that have closed in the past 12 months.
