Born and raised in Boston in a large Italian family, David Daniels discovered his unorthodox dream to become a chef from the young age of thirteen. In 1986 Daniels embarked on a journey traveling across the United States to learn the ropes from the masters – including Acqua in San Francisco, Ventana Country Inn in Big Sur, and Pinot Blanc in St. Helena. Upon returning to New England, Daniels took over the reins at The Wauwinet on Nantucket which was awarded the Grand Award from Wine Spectator. He later arrived in Boston as Executive Chef at the OAK Bar + Kitchen at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and Aragosta at the Fairmont Battery Wharf, before spending four years as Culinary Director with MET Restaurant Group, Saltie Girl and Stephanie’s Restaurant Group, and Culinary Director for Bespoke Hospitality.
