After nearly six years at WaterCourse Foods, last week exec chef Rachel Kesley was let go. "It's complicated, but ultimately it came down to direction," she says.

Says LeahH:

I used to love WaterCourse. But now that Rachel is gone, and now that they're charging $13 for my favorite sandwich...well, I'll have to find other options.

Sounds like Cantake8 already has:

What do you think of WaterCourse these days? City, O' City? Read more about Kesley's departure here; City, O' City gets name-checked in our ongoing "hipster douchebag" restaurant discussion here.
