About Joint Venture

Joint Venture

Chef

Danny has spent the past dozen years working in kitchens around New York City and abroad. After attending the French Culinary Institute, Danny worked at Momofuku Ko, Isa, Estela, and Cabane à Sucre Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal. In 2015, Danny founded Joint Venture as a way to explore how food can bring people together beyond the confines of a restaurant’s four walls. JV is a departure from and reaction to the kitchens of his past. It's about collaborating with friends, reconnecting with nature, and working directly with farmers and producers. JV creates menus that are of the season and expressive of their surroundings. JV is ever-evolving.

Working closely together, we’ll develop a custom menu that aligns with your vision. Sitting face-to-face, sharing ideas, and tasting things together is the way we create a food experience for your special day. Through building our relationship, learning about your individual paths and specific palates, we are able to enhance your vision. Our inspiration comes from the natural world and every meal is planned based on seasonality and sustainability. Our expertise in cooking the freshest ingredients over live fire brings a sense of immediacy and emotion to every event.


Sample catered weddings

Alexis and Ryan were inspiring to work with because they both are so excited about food. Alexis is a chef and Ryan is an enthusiastic eater. They appreciate fresh, local ingredients and allowed me to play to my strengths: working with nearby farms and vendors to secure the best produce and products and cooking over live fire to get the deepest flavors. We created a menu that felt reflective of the venue (the horse farm where Alexis grew up) and the surrounding landscape (the Catskills, where so much delicious food is grown).

    We can't recommend Danny and the Joint Venture team enough. It was important to us for this meal to feel more like what you'd expect from a restaurant than a typical wedding, and Danny's imaginative menu design and execution exceeded expectations and was stellar from start to finish. Even amidst unideal weather conditions, Danny exceeded expectations and his food has our guests raving to this day.

    Danny was receptive to our needs while being creative on his own. He needed very little guidance and managed to deliver a fantastic meal that everyone raved about. 10/10!

    Danny was such a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He completely got our vision and exceeded all expectations. He was prompt, did multiple site visits, and answered our slew of constant questions. Danny's food is a far cry from your typical wedding fare -- inventive, seasonal, inspired, and most of all delicious, our guests couldn't believe that such great food was at a wedding. I wish we got to do the whole celebration all over again for the food alone.
