The new year will see a new chef de cuisine at Randolfi’s as Tommy “Salami” Andrew joins the kitchen crew. One of Sauce Magazine’s 2015 Ones to Watch, Andrew was most recently at Byrd & Barrel and accepted the position at Randolfi’s after staging at Mike Randolph’s acclaimed University City eatery.

“We didn’t want to fill the position with just anyone who was available,” Randolph said. “He staged, and then we sat down together to see if it would be a good fit for everyone.”

Andrew will step into the role on Jan. 2, 2016. “I had never been to Randolfi’s, and was surprised at how awesome the food was,” he said. “With my Italian roots, I’m ready to get creative and make really good pasta. I think it’s going to be a great home for me, and I plan to stay a long time.”

Andrew’s Italian roots were only part of the equation for Randolph. “He has a lot of leadership attributes,” Randolph said. “Tommy is cut from the same cloth. Spend a few hours in the kitchen with him, and he’s going to work harder than everybody else and do the things a leader should do.”

In addition to his leadership qualities, Andrew will bring butchering and charcuterie skills, things Randolph said “inherently tie to the kind of Italian food we’re trying to put out.”
