Meet the Team

Danny Danny Danny

Daniel “Danny” Antin has been working in the restaurant management and food services industry for 15 years. He managed a Chinese eatery throughout high school and college and dreamed of opening his own Chinese restaurant with a family-friendly atmosphere; flavorful food; excellent service; and fast takeout and delivery options. Following a 10-year accounting career, Danny fulfilled his dream.

Danny and his brother David Antin partnered to open Danny’s Chinese Kitchen of Bellmore, NY, in January 2014. The restaurant quickly earned a reputation for its high standard of Chinese food.

David has 25 years of experience successfully leading companies and invested in the business. Five years after Danny’s Chinese Kitchen‘s opening, David joined Danny to be involved in the day-to-day operations and expand the brand.

In early 2021, Randy joined the partnership, Randy has known Danny and David personally for years and has a long-standing previous professional relationship with David. Randy is an attorney with over 20 years of experience in the asset management industry and is involved in the daily operations of the business, as well as expansion efforts.

Oceanside, NY, opened in July 2021, and is home to the trio’s second store. Their third location, Syosset, NY opened in the spring of 2022.

In 2022, they also purchased Paul Evans Catering – a full-service, off premise caterer that has been providing tasteful and top notch catering and staffing for over 40 years.

Danny, David and Randy all reside in Merrick, NY, with their families. They are committed to giving back to the community and surrounding areas. Together, they hope to serve these neighborhoods for many years to come.
