Goodbye, Rene

The Reader says a fond farewell to René Orduña who co-owned Dixie Quicks with his husband and partner Rob Gilmer for more than 30 years. Orduña passed away Wednesday after a brave battle with kidney cancer. The Reader mourns with Gilmer, and thanks Orduña for his tireless commitment to not only the food he lovingly prepared, but the community he and Gilmer created and nurtured.
