Israel taking on the Fatherland???

Hot on the heels of the news that Chris Israel is leaving his executive chef position at 23Hoyt, and right after Portland Food and Drink czar Food Dude's comment that he has heard Chris wants to open a German restauarnt, is this "clue" in this morning's local fishwrap The Oregonian. Oregonian food diva Karen Brooks did her own writeup of Israel's imminent departure, but that's not what caught my eye. What you may have missed is the not-so-accidental placement of the story next to an ad for Portland's iconic German restaurant Der Rheinlander. Coincidence? I think not! Stay tuned.........
