New Chef at Piccolo Teatro

~PICCOLO TEATRO~ in Sausalito has had a chef change: chef Travis Flood has departed, and taking his place is Amey Shaw. Her extensive background includes her start at the Fourth Street Grill in Berkeley under Mark Miller and Paul Bertolli; five years at Bentley’s Seafood and Oyster Bar (she says it’s where she really gained her knowledge about seafood); and she was a co-owner of the Alta Plaza (oh, the days), plus she’s had a take-out business and does a lot of consulting. She has made some changes to the lunch menu, adding a variety of piadine, like one with soppressata, Fontina, roasted cherry tomatoes, and an egg on top. The lunch menu now has a special of a piadina or panino for $10, with soup and salad included, and one of her new dinnertime dishes includes pumpkin ravioli with chive butter and ginger. No word on what Flood’s next move is—he was considering working a restaurant in the city, but it didn’t work out.
