City Island Yacht Club is pleased to welcome our new Steward, Dave Katz. Chef Dave Katz always knew he belonged in the kitchen starting off as dishwasher at the young age of 13. Gradually working up the ranks from prep cook to garde manger and line cook before heading off to further his education at Johnson Wales University.
After graduating with a Culinary Degree, his education continued under the guidance of Executive Chefs at both The Tuxedo Club in Tuxedo Park, NY and the Pelham Country Club in Pelham, NY.
In 2001, Chef Dave took a gamble and opened his first retail establishment, The Depot Market, a gourmet delicatessen featuring high end culinary breakfast and lunches. It was at the Depot Market that Chef Dave fell in love with the opportunity to bring joy to local residents via their catered events. In 2014, Depot Dave Catering was born and the rest is history. Thousands of events later, Chef Dave is looking forward to bringing that same culinary excellence that his clientele has become accustomed to, to the members of the City Island Yacht Club.
