Mama Ricotta's gets new exec chef

Drew Ward is the new executive chef at Mama Ricotta's, and has revamped the lunch lineup as his first step, introducing five new sandwiches, plus pastas and entrees. The new list is slated to be out in the next two weeks.
Ward is a grad of the French Culinary Institute in New York, worked at Manhattan Ocean Club, Quality Meats, Tabla and Oceana, and became exec chef at sibling Cantina 1511 at Stonecrest.
Among the new fare: three panini (soppressata, speck and goat cheese), chicken meatloaf with hot cherry pepper gravy, shrimp and artichoke salad, whole wheat linguine with salmon and more. (And yes, the penne alla vodka is still on the lunch menu.)
