New chef at Serrano

Matthew Daggett is the new executive chef at Serrano in Old City.

Executive chef Gina Rodriguez bowed out of Old City fave Serrano a couple of weeks ago for sunny Pasadena.

Her successor is Matthew Daggett, most recently chef de cuisine at Devil's Den.

He and owner Donal McCoy and new bar manager Shawn Gormley (co-owner of the former Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant) are working not only on a new menu for Serrano (20 S. Second St.) but on a revamp of the menu for Tin Angel upstairs.

They say they're going for value.

Daggett is a native of Bavaria, and as such makes his own sausages and pickles.
