I just got a lead in the post below that McCabe may no longer be at Delicias, and sure enough, a web search produced a UT article that he is taking over as Exec. Chef at La Valencia. This is a shocker. He was billed as Chef/Partner at Delicias, where he revamped things to rave reviews when his new menu appeared last May. One can only speculate, of course, but for him to be leaving his Delicias position so soon suggests that one side or both became quite unhappy with the other over something more serious than what's coming out of the kitchen.
Those of us who live closer to La Jolla than R.S.F. are, of course, thrilled.
