Facility NewsJoseph Walsh Brings Extensive Culinary Experience to Exciting GPNY

Grand Prix New York and Spins Bowl, the premiere indoor racing, social entertainment and corporate event venue in the New York City-metro area, announces that it has appointed Joseph Walsh as Executive Chef at FUEL restaurant and its catering facility.

“With Executive Chef Joe Walsh joining our team , we will continue to elevate our a la carte dining experience and surpass any culinary expectation that a large bar mitzvah, social or corporate customer may have,” said Bill Diamond, CEO of Grand Prix New York. “Our goal is to be the number one event facility in northern Westchester and Chef Walsh is a critical piece of the equation.”
An accomplished, passionate chef, Walsh has worked with Daniel Boulud, the famous New York City culinary master, and has also prepared meals for former President Bill Clinton and comedian Bill Cosby.

Walsh, a graduate of the New York Restaurant School, will keep the bulk of the current menu intact and introduce special seasonal items featuring artistically plated dishes that excite the senses. In addition to his cooking and presentation skills, Walsh draws from his extensive marketing, purchasing and staff management experience.

“Aside from having exemplary culinary abilities, executive chefs must be skilled in communication, time management, leadership and accounting in order to run a kitchen successfully,” he said. “We do a lot more than cook food: we research food industry trends, plan menus and develop budgets in addition to recruiting and instructing the staff.”

Walsh’s background includes overseeing the 250-seat Dolce International dining facility at General Electric global headquarters in addition to providing room service for 188 suites and catering for a 25,000 square-foot conference center. He also served as Corporate Executive Chef at Ace Endico food distributors and as Executive Chef at the Thornwood Conference Center Hotel.

In addition to his restaurant and catering experience, Walsh has served as the personal chef to former MetLife President Harry G. Hohn.
“My goal is to draw on my professional experience and use high-quality
ingredients to create the perfect meal for every setting,” said Walsh.
FUEL, Westchester’s most exciting restaurant, features award-winning cuisine
created with fresh, local ingredients. Grand Prix New York also features an
extensive catering menu.
