About Liza Shaw

Liza Shaw is a chef. She had her own Italian restaurant, Merigan Sub Shop. Before she ventured off on her own, she worked at A16, allowing her to grow as a chef: she started at the salad station, then sous chef, then chef de cuisine and finally Executive Chef/Partner in 2009. After leaving A16, her experience there gave her the opportunity to travel and consult while pondering her next move.

"Solid last day in Puglia. Espressino, pasticciotto, and antiques market in Lecce; lunch and beach in Savelletri; olive groves everywhere I looked and stellar clouds and light through it all."
