As he prepares to double his number of restaurants from 2 to 4 (and in the midst of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week), David DiBari–chef/owner of The Cookery and The Parlor in Dobbs Ferry, NY–sits down with Andrew to discuss his Upstate New York roots, his time cooking at Babbo and at David Bouley’s Danube in Manhattan, and why he chooses to ply his trade in Westchester County. They also discuss his upcoming projects: a British-style eatery in Dobbs Ferry, and an upscale diner in Port Chester, NY. In between they get into the “criminal amount” of fun David has always found in the cooking trade, his love of culinary school, his surprising affection for classic French cuisine, and the importance of bringing his own personality to every project he takes on.
