Ten Penny

Ten Penny Restaurant, 960 Penn Ave., Downtown, and AMPD Group have named Anthony Hruska executive chef.

Hruska comes to Ten Penny with more than 30 years of experience within the restaurant and hospitality industries, and is bringing his expertise in American cuisine to the restaurant.

Hruska grew up in Latrobe and attended the University of Pittsburgh. Shortly after graduation, he relocated to Florida, where he worked in the culinary industry for 15 years. Two of the 15 years were spent working for Donald Trump as a special-events banquet chef at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla. Prior to accepting the position at Ten Penny, Hruska owned and operated the Ivy Cafe in Ligonier.

Hruska has brought new seasonal dishes to the menu, including pumpkin soup, port-poached pear salad and braised lamb shank.
