Chef Liza Shaw at SF Chefs.

One of my favorite female executive chefs in the city, Liza Shaw at ~A16~ is leaving the restaurant after being there when it opened in 2004, according to the Scoop. Shaw is off to do some traveling (she said in an email to me: “I’m doing a guest chef event at Seresin Winery in NZ in February, but for now I think I might go stay with my brother for a while in Switzerland. He lives in Bruson, near Verbier, which is very close to the Italian border so it will be a good home base for lots of trips.”). Buon viaggio, signorina Shaw. Chef de cuisine David Taylor will be promoted to exec.
