New York Marriott Marquis, in the heart of Times Square and Broadway’s bustling theater district, is proud to introduce Nigel Boschetti as executive chef. The award-winning chef now directs all culinary operations for the roughly 1.8 million-square-foot hotel, which includes overseeing the sous chefs at each of the property’s four dining outlets; bringing to life signature, flavorful dishes; handling all aspects of food and beverage for groups and events; and ensuring a high-quality service for which New York Marriott Marquis is known.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Chef Boschetti to the New York Marriott Marquis team, as he makes his U.S. culinary debut with nearly 30 years of international industry experience,” said Dan Nadeau, the hotel’s general manager. “Boschetti’s innovative cooking style and strong management expertise will elevate our hotel’s high-volume, yet intimate experiences to an even greater level.”
Since Boschetti’s arrival, New York Marriott Marquis has taken a number of steps to increase its quality culinary experience for guests, such as installing Farmshelf, an indoor farm that grows a number of fresh herbs right in the hotel lobby to be used in specific dishes and cocktails.
Boschetti joins New York Marriott Marquis from his previous position as executive chef of JW Marriott Grosvenor House London, where he led a team of 70 chefs across four different hotel restaurants and banquet affairs, handling all aspects of food safety, menu development, and more. A native of West Sussex, England, Boschetti began his career as head chef at the medieval Amberley Castle, a unique luxury hotel in the beautiful West Sussex countryside steeped in more than 900 years of history. He has also served as executive chef at Royal Lancaster Hotel London, Millennium Conference Centre and Millennium Baileys Hotel London, Payne and Gunter Event Caterers (Compass Group), and Simpson’s in The Strand. A member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and an Honorary Member of The Craft Guild of Chefs, he has received numerous awards across the culinary, hospitality and leadership sectors.
