I was surprised to read in the Scoop that chef Peter McNee is leaving ~POGGIO~ after seven years—seems he is looking for his own new place and is considering San Francisco for the location (which makes me happy, because the guy is mega talented). His last day is February 3rd; taking his place will be Ben Balesteri, who is currently the senior sous chef.
Farther north, Scoop reports ~VIN ANTICO~ in San Rafael has closed after six years. 881 4th St. at Lootens, San Rafael.
