Excitement surged through local food blogs this morning, following Allan Hough's unsourced Mission Mission morning scoop about Delfina's plans to take over Ramblas on Valencia. Eater's sharp-eyed Carolyn Alburger ramped things up by noticing that Craig Stoll had left for Mexico early this month, on what he coyly tweeted might be an R&D junket. Could the Stolls be planning some Nopalito-like concept for Valencia?
As for Annie Stoll, she wasn't budging. "There have been a lot of rumors flying around today," she said, "but we can neither confirm or deny them. Sorry!" No word yet from Ramblas.
