"The staff and I had a great run at IL Giardino restaurant and we thank you for being a part of it. I am deeply grateful to you all for your loyal patronage over the years, and thank you for enjoying IL Giardino with me. It is a great feeling to leave on a high note, and I look forward to seeing you all again at my two restaurants in Whistler, il Caminetto and Trattoria. This is not goodbye, but arrivederci !! "
