Closings: Chez Nous To Become Casa Nostra?

Michael Bauer broke some big news on his blog this morning. Chez Nous has reportedly been sold to the people behind A16:

News travels quickly. Even though I’m 2,000 miles away at the William Inge Theater Festival in Kansas, I’ve heard that Pascal Rigo, who pioneered the small plate concept at Chez Nous, has sold the Fillmore Street restaurant to the folks of A16, who are pioneers of San Francisco’s regional Italian trend. Both the seller and the buyer have exciting plans in the works. We’ll give you the full scoop in Wednesday’s Food section.

With the lack of details at this juncture, we can only guess as to what this means for the future of Chez Nous. Will it turn Italian? Will normal plates replace the small plates? Will it close? Will it remain the same?
