The Inside Scoop was provided the news first, but a just-released press release confirms that partner Gordon Drysdale (formerly of Bix, Gordon’s House of Fine Eats, Caffe Verbena) has left Bacchus Management Group after 10 years with the group.

Drysdale worked on the Café des Amis opening, and most recently was executive chef to the four Pizza Antica locations, which Mark Sullivan (Spruce, The Village Pub) will take over. Scoop reports that “Drysdale’s famous Brussels sprouts will stay on the menu,” so don’t freak out. Drysdale plans to spend more time with family and focus on his own projects.
