Chef Shuffles Around Town: Café des Amis, Circa, Nombe, Waterfront

Table of Contents

Boy, there are a lot of chef changes to report. You ready? The Inside Scoop reports executive chef Ed Carew is no longer at ~CAFÉ DES AMIS~, and that he’s considering opening his own place again. Based on the delicious inzimino di calamari stew he did for Howard Case’s annual holiday party this past weekend, I hope he sticks with Italian (that dish rocked).

More from Scoop: now that chef Amy Glaze is at Citizen Cake, CIRCA has hired Daniel Sudar, a former chef de cuisine at Betelnut, along with Redwood City’s Red Lantern and Door in Walnut Creek.

Now that Nick Balla is leaving ~NOMBE~ at the end of the year, owners Mari Takahashi and Gil Payne have hired Vincent Schofield (Darwin Café, Ebb & Flow) as his replacement. Looks like they are going to be sending Schofield to Japan for some recon before he starts.

Lastly, a tablehopper reader pointed me to a tweet, letting me know Greg Lutes is going to be the executive chef of the WATERFRONT RESTAURANT. He was at the Groveland Hotel in Yosemite.
