If there’s one thing that we can say about Chef David Cingari it’s that he’s one of the kindest, most fun people you’ll ever meet. But, don’t be fooled by his booming laugh and kind heart, he’s one badass when it comes to cooking and running his super popular catering company, David’s Soundview Catering. And, while he’s been making marks on the culinary scene with his company since 1998, he’s never done looking for the next best thing. Last year he opened Cafe 1000 in Bridgeport which made its mission to feed locals and workers for breakfast and lunch. And now, David has made things even more amazing with two new additions.

Chef Francois Kwaku-Dongo and David Cingari of The Landing from David's Soundview CateringThe first addition is David hired the ever-smiling Francois Kwaku-Dongo, his new Executive Chef. Readers of our blog should know that name because he was the opening chef at JHouse in Greenwich, as well as the Executive Chef at l’escale. Yep, he’s got some major cred (and skills), so much so that we can’t even list them all here.

David Cingari is. the. man.  He’s a graduate of not only New Haven Hotel & Restaurant Management, but also of the Culinary Institute of America.  On a personal level, he is probably one of the nicest and most hilarious guys that you’ll ever met, and he’s also the proud owner and Head Chef of David’s Soundview Catering in Stamford.  We got to know him and the DSC crew at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center’s Maple Sugar Chef’s Challenge, and at many charitable events that they support and help organize.  Needless to say, when it comes to awesome food like their redonkulous taco bar that we tasted at Fine Food for a Cause, they’ve got it all under control.  And, with over 25 years under their belts, David’s Soundview Catering has garnered an excellent reputation, becoming a staple in the community.

Stamford…and now Bridgeport

Well, we’ve got some great news to share with you:  David’s expanded a bit out of Stamford with the recent addition (opened 5 weeks ago) of Cafe 1000.  His idea for this brand new restaurant?  Offer up some great, high quality breakfast and lunch options for the good people of Bridgeport.  The area they moved into (the ground floor at 1000 Lafayette Street) will soon house over 600 new apartment units, is close to 95, the train, and even the waterfront.  Plus, Bridgeport is a great and growing alternative for young professionals with costs noticeably more affordable than Stamford.
