Watson’s chefs each bring decades of experience and highly creative skills to their craft. Our entire kitchen staff is dedicated to creating and delivering menus that delight and satisfy our clients and their guests.
Alfredo Maldonado, Chef · Fredo honed his expertise and culinary style at Emily Shaw’s Inn at Pound Ridge before joining the Watson’s team in 1995. A native of Ecuador, he brings an eclectic, international sense of style to his cooking. “Working at Watson’s has allowed me to experiment with different foods to create unique offerings for our clients.” He has cooked for two sitting presidents, as well as former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Henry Kissinger. At many Watson’s events, Alfredo is asked out by his hosts to receive an ovation for his oustanding work.
Paul Vinci, Chef · Paul joined the Watson’s team in 2002. He is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and has over 20 years of restaurant experience working his way up the ranks in some of the finest restaurants and country clubs. Along with extraordinary creations in hors d’oeuvres and entrees, Paul’s has a special culinary passion for creating beautiful and elegant desserts and pastries. Along with our clients, even the Watson’s team delights in tasting his newest creations.
Marco Maldonado, Sous Chef · Marco started with Watson’s in 1993 and worked his way up to working side-by-side with Alfredo and Paul. He is responsible for the construction of many of our most creative and time-consuming special items, such as our famous Mini-grilled Cheeseburgers and our Watsons’s Precious Vegetable Bundles bound with chive, and with every event he continues to explore new ways to delight our clients.
Watsons honors the memory of John Watson Scully, loving father to Susan and dedicated fan and supporter of Watson’s. Without him, we would not be here
