Roland Liccioni, whose resumé reads like a history of French fine dining in Chicago (Le Français, Les Nomades, Carlos’, Le Lan, Old Town Brasserie), is leaving his current gig at Miramar (301 Waukegan Ave., Highwood; 847-433-1078) after tonight. “I’m going to take some time off. I’m going to Europe for three or four weeks. See friends, chefs, people I know,” he says. Liccioni doesn’t know who will replace him, and Miramar’s owner, Gabe Viti, is unreachable on a mountain-climbing trip. When Liccioni returns from Europe, he’ll embark on a project in the city, but he won’t tell us any more than that. “I want to say when I come back,” he says.
