After 11 years with Delfina Restaurant Group, group executive chef Anthony Strong is leaving at the end of September. He has been busy over the years, first at Delfina, then opening Locanda, as well as expanding Pizzeria Delfina to its four current locations.

What’s next? Scoop reports he is working on opening his own Bay Area restaurant, but there aren’t any details to share at the moment. Delfina’s Craig and Annie Stoll have been aware of his impending departure since the beginning of the year, so it’s not a surprise, although it’s a big change—and now they need to hire a replacement. Stand by for details on all of this as things take shape, and best to you, Anthony! Looking forward to seeing what’s next.
