Acclaimed Boston-area chef Tony Susi is putting down some roots in Cambridge as the new executive chef of Bar Enza in The Charles Hotel. Locals may know the chef and culinary consultant from his work at Capo, Ripasso at Wink & Nod, and Geppetto in Cambridge, where he’s honed his skills as one of the city’s foremost Italian chefs and pasta makers. He takes over the helm of the neo-trattoria from chef Mark Ladner who has transitioned into a corporate position with Bar Enza’s parent company, The Lyons Group.
