OT: Ubuntu is closing for the winter to take a "sabbatical"
- In the San Francisco Chronicle, the newspaper of Silicon Valley:
" Beginning November 21, the Michelin-starred restaurant will close
" and go on what they're calling a "sabbatical."
" During the time, the Ubuntu team will "develop and adjust their
" fine dining concept." Per the announcement:
" "This time will provide an opportunity for Chef Aaron London and
" owner Sandy Lawrence to travel, study, renovate, and make the
" adjustments necessary for the next evolution of creative,
" inspired Ubuntu cuisine."
" During the break, there will be a series of TBD assorted pop-ups
" in the empty space, and the Ubuntu team promises a return
" sometime in spring 2012.
" It's no secret that Napa slows down during the winter months, but
" still, this is a curious development. More info as it comes in.
