Bella Brava, Domenica Macchia part ways

in Apolitical/Peter by

Sad news to report but my favorite chef, the ever mercurial Domenica Macchia, and my favorite restaurant, Bella Brava, have decided to part ways.  I really don’t know where this leaves Domenica.  She is one of the most talented chefs I know, but has had trouble settling down into one place.  As for Bella Brava, their license to print money, err, I mean, move to Beach Drive is on-track (although they just started going through permitting yesterday).
