Two separate sources confirm today that Giovanni Apollo has sold his restaurants to a group that includes a frequent collaborator, chef Daren Bergeron.

Apollo was not available for comment. When reached by telephone, Bergeron would only say, "Call me next week."

One tipster, who has close links with Apollo, told Eater today: "I thought the transaction was common knowledge!"

Apollo's restaurants include a flagship, namesake restaurant on University in Downtown Montreal, Les Éclusiers par Apollo and La Buvette par Apollo, both in Old Montreal, and Le Bistro par Apollo in Little Italy.

The chef and ubiquitous media personality will now allegedly concentrate on his duck farm in Texas and his television projects.

Watch this space for more details.
