THE DELI & WINE/BEER BAR
"WBF is a family dream and hard work coming true. It is built on the love of people, food, culture, world travel, and the spirit where there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet." - Bili Davies-Moir
Who is WBF?
Daniel R. Moir
Dan was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and lived Minnesota and Wisconsin. He started with his love of food and cooking while attending the University of Minnesota, where he obtained his Bachelors of Science (B.S.) undergraduate degree in Geology. Dan held a position of cook at a high volume bar and restaurant located in Downtown Minneapolis. Dan typically ran the kitchen by himself most nights. In addition to the restaurant, Dan supported a small deli located near the University campus by preparing and servicing meals to patrons.
Once Dan graduated, he worked in the field of geology and oil & gas consulting for over 13 years. In the various roles he held during this period, Dan learned to manage people, finances, clients’ management, and grew into various leadership roles managing dozens of staff members. He has groomed future, very successful employees, led by example, and always sought the success in others as he does in himself.
As Dan continued to excel as a young, strong, and successful Geologist, he decided it was time to return to his love of cooking. In 2008, Dan enrolled at Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, a private and esteemed culinary institution located in Downtown Denver, Colorado, to enhance his culinary love and experience and obtained his culinary diploma. Dan has been a practicing chef since summer of 2008 by working in restaurants, supporting caterers, and self-catering various political, graduation, birthday, and family events, which ranged from 10 people to 70 people in attendance for each event. Self-catering was conducted with limited support and each time was met with high praise and enthusiasm from the attendees and repeat business from clients.
It was the continued growth of his love of entrepreneurship, food, people, and world travels which spurred the next adventure for him and his family, and brought them to seek out space in the vibrant and exciting neighborhood. Here, the family is looking to grow our love of food by becoming a big part of the community, which will now be called home, by operating WBF.
