David Lynch, ST. VINCENT / BON APPÉTIT (San Anselmo, CA)

David was raised in Connecticut and graduated from Boston College. He worked as a senior editor for Wine & Spirits magazine and has authored wine-related articles for numerous periodicals and websites. In 2000, he began working at Babbo, first as wine director, then as general manager. In 2001, he received a James Beard Journalism Award for his writing, largely because of his work at Wine & Spirits magazine. In 2004, he won the James Beard Restaurant Award for Outstanding Wine Service at Babbo.

David later became wine director of San Francisco’s Michelin-starred Quince and its more casual sibling, Cotogna. He was featured on the cover of San Francisco magazine in August 2011 as the magazine’s “Wine Director of the Year.” St. Vincent is his newest and first personal venture. The restaurant and shop feature wines from all over the world. David is also the contributing wine editor at Bon Appétit, where his “Wine Insider” column appears regularly. David and wife Josie have a 6-year-old son, Ellis, and live in San Anselmo, California.
