Chef Bio
: At the age of 14, Dan Drohan was hired as a dishwasher in an Italian restaurant in Sag Harbor, NY. Not too long after, he was promoted to cook. After finishing high school, Dan attended the Culinary Institute of America and after graduation, headed to Colorado where, for two years, he snowboarded by day and cooked at a resort by night. In the fall of 1999, Dan returned to the east coast and worked as a sous chef in restaurants in both Westchester and Shelter Island. In January 2004, Zach Allen, then the Executive Chef at OTTO, hired Dan to be his sous chef. Under Zach, Dan learned all the ins and outs of OTTO’s renowned artisanal cured meats program. Dan took over as Executive Chef in the fall of 2005 and continues to produce all of OTTO’s cured meats in-house. In 2007, under Dan’s tutelage, OTTO became the first restaurant in New York City to have a Cured Meats HACCP plan approved by the New York City Health Department.


Seating is limited, and is $50 per person. For reservations, please call the restaurant 212-995-9559, or contact a.eckstein@duvelusa.com.
