Dave started Phantom Gourmet in 1993. During that time, he completed a 4 year JD/MBA program at Northeastern University. Dave is single, lives alone and eats out for every single meal. He’s a trained boxer known outside the squared circle as the Great White Hopeless.  Dave is an avid historian with a concentration on the great General Gao’s transformation from a fierce leader on the battlefield to a culinary genius. Often mistaken as The Situation from “Jersey Shore,” Dave takes pride in being the tallest and tannest of the Andelman brothers with the greasiest hair.
