Boothbay Harbor, Maine (March 30, 2012) – Spruce Point Inn (www.sprucepointinn.com), the 85-room resort located on 57 waterfront acres at the entrance to Boothbay Harbor, Maine has named Edward Howes as Food & Beverage Manager. Reporting to General Manager Cindy Mastrella, he is responsible for overseeing operations for the Inn’s three restaurants: 88, Bogie’s and Deck. 88, the dining room in the historic Main Inn serves Maine Coast Cuisine in a bright and casually elegant space with views of the ocean. Bogie’s is a casual bistro in a clubbier space with copper-topped tables and the convivial atmosphere of a New England tavern. Deck, debuting this summer, is an umbrella-shaded, oceanside café, open daily for lunch.
Mr. Howes trained in the food service industry through the American Federations Apprenticeship Program under Certified Executive Chef John Brantley at the Ashford Club and the Georgia Club in Atlanta, Georgia and gained food and beverage industry experience working as executive chef in fine hotels and resorts throughout the south and east. Since 2007, he has worked with a hotel company in North Carolina managing food and beverage operations in their new hotels, from construction through opening. He received his Certified Food and Beverage Executive degree in 2009.
“We welcome Edward Howes and his experience in resort food and beverage operations to Spruce Point Inn,” said Angelo DiGiulian, owner/innkeeper for Spruce Point Inn. “As the restaurants and catering reputation at Spruce Point continues to expand, we need someone with Ed’s knowledge, experience and guest service skills as a key member of our team.”
