White Rose Restaurant Group announced today the addition of Chef David Albright to its executive leadership team at Rockfish Public House and Valencia Ballroom companies. As Culinary Director and Co-Owner, Albright will contribute to projects designed to enhance the hospitality experiences for guests at Rockfish Public House and the Valencia Ballroom. Albright joins CEO and Co- Owner Tom Sibol and COO and Co-Owner Jeremiah Anderson in this managing partnership.
Known for his creative menus, astounding attention to detail and passion for cooking, Albright brings more than 30 years of professional culinary experience to Rockfish Public House — a premier seafood restaurant which opened in 2016 in downtown York — and the Valencia Ballroom. Growing up in Massachusetts, Albright said his New England hometown inspired his passion for preparing and serving exceptional quality seafood. Upon completing his culinary studies at Johnson & Wales University, Albright worked as a chef at two York County country clubs before becoming owner and executive chef at a longstanding downtown York restaurant, which he served for 19 years. More recently, Albright launched David Albright Chef Services and provided restaurant consulting, branding, menu development and related services to aspiring and established restaurateurs and hospitality professionals.
“I’ve known Tom and Jeremiah for close to 20 years and have always had a great appreciation and respect for White Rose,” Albright said. “Both of our reputations stand for themselves. You see their reputation in the way they run their business and in the way they treat their employees. I’m pleased to continue to be a part of downtown York and am looking forward to working with Tom, Jeremiah and their team.”Known

David is a true restaurant industry success story, and we are honored to have this opportunity to partner with him.”
“David is a proven restaurant owner-operator who knows what it takes day in and day out to be successful. Not only can he create extraordinary elevated dishes and cuisine, but he’s also highly proficient in essential restaurant management operations such as product selection,” said Jeremiah Anderson, COO and Co-Owner. “From an owner’s perspective, David knows how every detail shapes and rounds out the full dining experience for guests, from the time they walk through the door to the time they complete their meal.
