David Casey

Chef and Owner

David always had a passion for working with his hands and creating foods from scratch. While leafing through his mother’s “Taste of Home” magazines and collecting recipes, he knew that a culinary profession would be in his future, and this propelled him through culinary school.  Through years of working alongside his father, David learned that attention to detail and honest hard work would be the cornerstone of his success.

The opportunity to closely work with his predecessor Laurin Fegley would prove to be invaluable, David learned to orchestrate an event from the ground up, starting with a clean slate, hearing the clients needs and designing an event to match those wishes.

Today, after some wonderful accomplishments for groups ranging from 2-1,500 he bases every event on a logistics approach insuring there aren’t pitfalls as the event comes together. From fantastic entertainment options to unparalleled food choices, David will work hand in hand to custom design your vision while insuring that the client is best served, informed and spending their money wisely. Want to plan something over the top with lot’s of WOW, a simple family dinner, a night on the town? He will help you create a memorable experience to be remembered for years to come!

The highlight of David’s day will always be any time he has to spend with his amazing wife Kristen and their two precious daughters Ava & Quinn. Especially when it’s spent in the kitchen while those little hands work to put their own creative spin on dinner.
