Does *anyone* know what happened to Rene Michelina?

I read the thread from '09 that said he may have left for Florida, but a quick Google search yields nothing I can find about his current whereabouts. Anyone?

    I actually heard the FL rumor from an industry friend of his very recently.

        I bow, I bow! Too bad the Dolce de Palma website itself is a total mess (check out the "menu"...

          I wondered when I looked at it if the place were closed already, but I think it's still in business. Gifted chefs and skillful business managers often aren't the same people.

            Definitely true in his case...I can think of a few others, as I know you can too...

              So, guess what. Just heard from my old friend Rob McKeown. True to itinerant form, Rene must've already bailed from FL, because Rob just helped opened a new restaurant in Hong Kong...headed by Rene.

        Does anyone know what happened to Victor Bono?
