David Clapp is a graduate of the University of Georgia, with a BFCS degree in Hospitality Management 1993. He worked his way through the ranks at Cafe Tu Tu Tango to become the Vice President of Operations in 1996, helping to grow the brand to six restaurants with $20 million in annual sales. In 2003, Clapp left Café Tu Tu Tango to create and open Dantanna’s in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. In 2006 he joined forces with long-time friend and colleague Dave Nicholas to create Bottom Line Hospitality (BLH), a management, operations, and development company. In 2013, the owners of Virtue Feed & Grain in Alexandria, Virginia engaged BLH to turn around the fledgling concept. That project tuned into an ongoing management agreement and set the foundation for Alexandria Restaurant Partners.
