Jeff Katz
General Manager
Del Posto

Jeff Katz has been working in Italian restaurants since he was fifteen. His first job at Pellino's, a family owned restaurant in Marblehead, (MA) set the foundation for the rest of his career. Katz attended Babson College and majored in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. After graduating from Babson in 2004 he opened La Morra Restaurant in Brookline, Massachusetts, as Beverage Director. Thereafter, he 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 Grand Chefs distinction, and the Five Diamond Award from AAA.
