It’s been a tough week for NoMI. News came late yesterday that Executive Chef Christophe David is leaving the esteemed restaurant to move to Switzerland. Though it’s undoubtedly sad news for the city, Chicago Magazine points out that it is actually a romantic tale. David had convinced a woman to move from Switzerland for him, and after she got job in back home, he decided to return the favor. He told Chicago, “After she followed me, now I’m going to follow her.” David’s family is from nearby Lyon, France, so he’ll also be closer to them. How cute. Anyway, this also follows the news that Christian Ragano was leaving the restaurant for New York. [Chicago Magazine]
