Matt McIntosh and Ricky Hacker, owners/chefs of EVO pizzeria, have brought aboard Matt Russell as the Park Circle restaurant's new executive chef.

After six years of cranking out what many consider to be the best pizza in town, the pair found themselves ready to take a step back from their labor of love and tighten their focus on their next move. While the pair are keeping tight-lipped on the direction of their next restaurant, it is a fact that it'll be located in the Park Circle area.

In the meantime, Russell, a longtime sous chef from McCrady's, is adding his personal touch to the EVO menu and planning big things for the pizzeria in the upcoming months.
