Todd Darling
Born in New York City and raised in North Jersey, Todd spent his teenage years serving in top local restaurants under "old-world" restauranteurs. Needing to explore the world, he moved to The Netherlands for a year and worked on a farm. Upon returning to the US, he apprenticed with the most successful Italian chef/owners in New Jersey and worked for event & catering companies in the Big Apple.
Opportunity knocked in 2004 when the Pure Group in Hong Kong hired Todd as General Manager to open RED Bar + Restaurant in Two ifc, later promoting him to General Manager of Pure Fitness. Todd eventually looked beyond Pure to co-found Wagyu restaurant in 2006 and Wagyu Lounge in 2008.
Year 2009 saw Todd realizing his dream of a personal management company with Co-Founder. And Commune Limited was born - a platform for an integrated hospitality company, embodying the values they share about people, community, and the industry.
Todd will oversee restaurant development and operations for Commune Limited, specifically the company's first flagship restaurant Posto Pubblico.

The staff are engaged in their professions rather than being bored task masters, and this is evident in their interactions with our diners," explains Todd Darling, Co-founder of Posto Pubblico.

This approach mirrors the Posto Pubblico philosophy of treating customers democratically with equal parts respect and appreciation. It is also reflected in their regard of suppliers and producers as "stakeholders" in the business, taking on the view that "our success is their success and their success is our success".
As the flagship restaurant for Commune Limited, Posto Pubblico is a groundbreaking new concept by food and beverage visionaries Todd Darling, Robert Spina and Cathal Keily.

Much like the way Italian immigrants made the most of the produce available to them when they arrived in New York, we are taking the same recipes and working with local producers as much as possible," says Todd Darling, Partner and Co-founder of Posto Pubblico.
...
"Being able to look your local producer in the eye and personally seeing the conditions in which your ingredients are grown is truly rare in Hong Kong but having this luxury gives you greater peace of mind that what you are serving in your dishes is the best quality it can possibly be," adds Darling.
