He and his family are in France. I don't know where exactly, and I think he plans to come back to the States at some point. I will post if I have any news from him.

I thought I read somewhere that he was going to try wine making.

Of course, I could be completely wrong.

He might just be taking some time off, but I know he has been there longer than he originally planned. My husband and I are fans of his also, so I will post any information I get.

Well, bully for you but that's damn inconvenient for the rest of us! :wink:

I had a memorable lunch at NoMI as well. Glad I caught him while he was relatively nearby.

Thanks, youngchef, for the information. How did you happen to come by it? Are you in touch with chef Gamba?

Caught this news on June 6 at Hospitality.net:

Sandro Gamba has joined the pre-opening team at the Four Seasons Westlake Village as Executive Chef. Gamba, who was most recently consulting for the owners of Absinthe Brasserie in San Francisco, built his name as the Executive Chef at Nomi at the Park Hyatt Chicago and at the now shuttered Lespinasse at the St. Regis Washington DC. Gamba was one of Food and Wine's Best New Chefs a few years back and started his career with Joel Robuchon and Alain Ducasse.
