Calling the split “amicable,” a hot-off-the PR machine statement says the departure of Ubuntu chef Jeremy Fox was a “resignation” that'll allow the chef to “pursue other interests,” the departed chef equivalent of a resigned politician explaining that he wants to spend more time with his family. Taking up exec chef duties: ex-Ubuntu executive sous chef Aaron London.
From the official Ubuntu press release:
“We have been delighted to work with Jeremy on the creation of this great restaurant,” says Ubuntu Owner Sandy Lawrence. “Jeremy was instrumental in opening and creating the foundation for Ubuntu which helped establish the restaurant as a leading Northern California destination, we wish him all the best in his future endeavors. We look forward to Chef Aaron London ushering the restaurant into its next chapter.”
