Chef Hageman Returns

According to, “After a year in the works, Wade Hageman, the genius chef who had a winning way with black truffles during his tenure at Blanca, is opening his own eatery tomorrow night (Friday, June 18) in Encinitas.”

“The doors to Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria open at 5 p.m. Expect the queue to form early for this intimate 35-seat eatery at 897 S. Coast Highway 101, Suite 102 in the Lumberyard shopping center in Encinitas. Wood-fired pies topped with organic, local ingredients are the darlings here, but the appetizers list is equally long — how about a little sweet corn soup with chili oil or hand-stretched mozzarella with local tomatoes and basil to get the party swinging? Check out for the low down on all the food being served.”
