David Massoni


With more than twenty years of restaurant experience, owner David Massoni started in the industry at the age of fifteen, working in his parents’ Zagat rated and Wine Spectator award-winning hotel and restaurant, the Imperial Hotel, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Since then David has played a significant role in the opening, building and managing of numerous successful New York City restaurants.

The Fox & Falcon is not Massoni’s first foray into the restaurant ownership, however it is his first solo project and the culmination of his lifelong dream to open his own restaurant. Upon moving to South Orange from Brooklyn, he fell for the community and took note of the need for a central location where people could come together and enjoy each other’s company, a high-quality meal and artisanal cocktails that also embodied the uniqueness and diversity of SOMA living. In November 2018, The Fox & Falcon was born.  

David lives in South Orange, New Jersey with his wife Rachel, their son Luca and daughter Olive
