A restaurateur and chef for over two decades, Dave grew up in Schenectady, NY. He learned 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 both 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 shop, he put his carpentry skills to work and created a 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 embark on a new adventure – The Mouzon House. He’s been executive chef at Mouzon now for more than a decade.
His love for Creole cuisine, using local seasonal ingredients and the authentic Italian techniques he learned at his family’s side help keep The Mouzon House menu fresh and always creative.
