DelPosto_Portraits_140

Jeff Katz has been working in Italian restaurants since he was fifteen. Jeff attended Babson College and majored in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Not long after graduation, Jeff relocated to New York where he worked in sales for Domain Select Wine Estates and then for the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Battery Park. In February 2006, Katz joined the team at Del Posto. He moved quickly through the restaurant’s ranks: starting out as a Dining Room manager, then Private Dining Manager, and finally, in late 2009, General Manager. Under Jeff’s guidance Del Posto received a four-star review from The New York Times, the prestigious Relais & Chateau distinction, and the Five Diamond Award from AAA. Jeff is a managing partner at Del Posto’s sister restaurant, La Sirena.
