David Allen, Chef and owner of Latitude 44 Bistro and graduate of the New England Culinary Institute (NECI), is an accomplished professional in his field. He cut his teeth at five-star restaurants like Breakers of West Palm Beach and Lutece at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. These transformative experiences meant more to the young Chef than most. Having been raised in the foster care system and left to make his own way at the age of 16, David’s course in life could have had a very different outcome. After High School and thanks to a neighbor and mentor, David attended a tour of NECI which led him to enroll and graduate, shaping his future indefinitely.

A local to the North Country, David returned and began his ascent to restaurant ownership by first working at local restaurants here in Plattsburgh. These experiences helped him understand his audience and allowed him to experiment and learn what flavors locals liked best.

After years of working for others, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came together that would allow David to open his own restaurant. He took hold of his dreams and made them a reality.

Chef David Allen opened Latitude 44 Bistro on May 15, 2012 hoping to bring new and fresh cuisine to Plattsburgh. Patrons of his restaurant enjoy his passion for flavors and beautiful presentation skills in a comfortable bistro setting. A mesh of American cuisine from a French trained Chef results in unique pairings and bold flavors artfully presented every time.
