I was quite shocked when Chef Barry Rumsey and his wife, Deborah Mazzoleni, decided to sell there very popular, highly recognized restaurant, Bicycle. It seems the urban life wasn’t for them anymore, so they packed up the family and moved to Oregon selling Bicycle to Chef Nicholas Batey.
What has spurred on this commentary is a soon-to-be posted story on a recent visit to Bicycle with the Food Examiner. Both of us have written our views of the evening's dining and hopefully will be posted in the next couple of days. In doing research for my story, I have found Chef Rumsey and his wife, living out their dream in Mosier, Oregon. Their restaurant, Good River Restaurant, views the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. Check them out and drop a note, I’m sure they would love to hear from you.
