Chef David Wright

"Fine Dinin" Dave Wright is a professional chef with over 20 years of culinary experience in California and New Orleans. In Napa Valley, under the direction of Michael Chiarello at TraVigne, it became apparent that being a chef was Dave’s destiny. In 1998, he relocated to New Orleans where he worked as sous chef for Jaime Shannon at Commander’s Palace. He spent the next 4 years as sous chef and general manager at Jacques Imo’s with Jacques Leonardi and local legend Austin Leslie. From 2006 through 2010 Dave was the banquet chef at New Orleans Country Club. Most recently in 2011 he helped friends and Kingpin owners Steve Watson and Ben Sherman open the successful Freret St. eatery Midway Pizza.

Dave grew up in St. Helena, California in the heart of Napa Valley, where a love for food and drink, especially Mexican cuisine came naturally. His love for Mexican food started early. Each year, at his request, Dave’s mother prepared a Mexican feast for his birthday. In high school and underage, he would wait at the back door of the local bar, Ana’s Cantina, for tacos to go. His first trip to Mexico at age 14 helped solidify his love of all things Mexican. The people, climate, culture and cuisine always have him looking forward to his next trip. This love of Mexico and its cuisine, and his desire to share it, are the driving force behind Del Fuego.
