Dave McCabe

Annapolis, MD

David McCabe has lived and breathed restaurants since he was 14 years old.  Starting as a dishwasher and working through the ranks of the kitchen for many years, until one fateful day when he decided to step into the front of house.  It stuck, and Dave moved from server to bartender to manager to founder.  Having worked throughout the Northeast, in Washington, DC, and now in Annapolis, MD, sweating on the fry station, making cocktails, curating beer lists and listening to customers complain (and be happy), he has a unique perspective on all aspects of the restaurant and beverage industry.

Dave is currently running the beverage program at the concept that he helped establish, Punk’s Backyard Grill, and is the driving force behind http://www.noblexperiment.com where he rants, explores cocktail recipes and spreads the good beer gospel.
