Foodies have more to look forward to in Boston than beans: Taj Boston has named Wayne Murphy Director of Food & Beverage.
In this role, Murphy will be responsible for all food and beverage operations of the hotel. This includes The Café, the all-day dining restaurant with a New England raw bar and views of Newbury Street; Afternoon Tea service in The French Room; seasonal Sunday Champagne Brunch on The Roof; daily Express Continental Breakfast, light lunch and dinner and small plates in The Bar; 24-hour in-room dining, and all weddings, banquets, corporate meetings and private events that take place in the hotel’s two ballrooms as well as The Roof and The Club event venues and 15 meeting rooms.
Murphy has more than 21 years of experience in all facets of hotel management and food and beverage gained in New England, the UK and his native Ireland.
He has overseen a successful $19 million brand re-invention of seven dining outlets and in-room dining concepts for The Boston Copley Marriott; increasing revenue for all restaurants and earning #1 company ratings from meeting planners at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common; and driving pre- and post-opening sales for four outlets at Boston Marriott Copley.
Most recently, during two years as Executive Director of Rooms at Providence Marriott Downtown, Murphy inspired significant gains in guest and associate satisfaction across six front and back of the house departments while also assisting with food and beverage operations.
The hotel is located at the intersection of Arlington and Newbury streets overlooks the Public Garden. For more information, visit www.tajhotels.com/boston.
