A restauranteur and chef for over two decades. Dave grew up in Schenectady, NY learning carpentry from his father and a love for cooking from his Mother and Aunts who were straight off the boat from Italy. In 1995 he saw an opportunity in Saratoga Springs to pursue his cooking and passion for music and decided to open One Caroline St. Bistro with his wife Dianne Pedinotti. Taking over a 100 year old print ship, he put his carpentry skills to work and created the jazz and blues bistro and bar from the ground up. He worked as executive chef at One Caroline until 2005 when the family decided to take on another project opening the Mouzon House. He’s been executive chef at Mouzon now for over a decade.
His love for creole cuisine and using local seasonal ingredients with a background in authentic Italian cooking helps keep the menu fresh and always creative.
