One of our many gifts to you this holiday season is an introduction to the wonderful David Gold. David joined the Mezze Bistro + Bar team this fall after working up in Pownal, Vermont with our friends at Mighty Food Farm. He’s basically the real person manifestation of “farm-to-table”. Enjoy learning about David and don’t be afraid to say hey if you run into him pouring your glass of water or perfecting a table setting.
