I have it from two sources (the globe article about ICA and waitstaff at Uni) that Rick Billings has left Clio. The Globe article says he's gone to NYC's L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, and the waitstaff said he'd gone to "New York to work at the French Laundry," which I assume was caused by flusteredness at my shameless flirting.
Word is that Renee (unknown by me), Billings' second, has taken over production for the moment, and that the dishes are still of Billings' design. We had two desserts and they were both excellent.
ObFood: The "pink lady biscuit cuilant" was excellent. I especially noticed that the gelee had nice, moderate flavor despite gelee's amazing ability to mute any flavor it touches.
That makes two pastry chefs who've left Oringer to fly with the stars: Billings and Alex Stupak, who moved on to Alinea and WD-50.
