To many residents of Pelham, Depot Dave is known for his catering. Now, Dave Katz will also be known for running the kitchen as head chef at a local yacht club.
The new position came about after the struggles brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. “I lost everything last year,” Katz said. He had to think creatively. “There was a bright side to it. I started doing dinners to go.” Katz created meals each day, like chicken parmesan on Tuesdays and even made dinners with a theme.
Two years ago, the City Island Yacht Club offered Katz the job as head chef. “Originally I said no to them, but this year they asked me again, and I said, ‘Why not?’”
