After three years with Lolita (900 Literary Rd., 216-771-5652), the last two as executive chef, Andy Strizak has left the restaurant. His last day was Sunday. He will be going to work alongside Ben Bebenroth at Spice of Life Catering.

Taking his place is James Mowcomber, former sous chef at Lola and recent chef at Tremont Tap House. Also joining the Lolita kitchen is Brad Ball, who relocated from Michael Symon's Roast in Detroit where he was sous chef.

"We're super excited to have these guys running the kitchen and me out front," says Lolita general manager Matthew Harlan. "We've started changing the menu and will continue to do more in a couple of weeks."
