About Anthony DePaul
DePaul, 41, grew up in Cherry Hill in a working middle-class family. Hard work and determination were taught at a very young age, and that if you set your mind to something, anything can be accomplished.
DePaul graduated from Widener University with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. Fresh out of college, he started managing the restaurant for the famous South Jersey country club Scotland Run.
After spending a few years there, he was called with an opportunity to be on the opening team at The Borgata Casino and Hotel. He joined The Borgata team and spent the next few years working his way through the ranks and worked his way up to The Borgata Nightlife General Manager.
He was married at that point in his life, and he and his wife had their first child, and the nightlife style was just not conducive to raising a family. He was then offered a job as the Beverage Manager with Steven Starr at the Pier in Atlantic City at the Continental. He credits that opportunity by Starr as where he really learned how to run a restaurant from every aspect.
After a few years, he was offered a GM opportunity for Lascalas in Philadelphia. After spending a few years there, he got a call to run a high-end steakhouse for Iron Chef Marc Forgione with LDV Hospitality at the Revel Casino. Upon the Revel closing after 4 years, he was offered a job that would be his home for many years at The Chophouse.
After spending just about 7 years with the PJW Restaurant Group, the opportunity of a lifetime was presented as his one shot at opening his very own restaurant in Ardmore. He said, "I am making my dream happen, and it is an amazing feeling. I am so thankful and honored to be able to do what I love and serve so many people in an all-new way."
DePaul is married to his wife Tina, and together they have four sons Anthony, Dante, Roman, and Franco. They reside in Williamstown, NJ, together. The DePaul family looks forward to getting to know their new neighbors, friends, and patrons in Downtown Ardmore.
