Olivia Braat

Ram's Head Inn in Shelter Island is welcoming new Executive Chef Matt Murphy this spring. With his extensive resume that includes time at a number of highly esteemed restaurants and the coinciding plethora of local and global experience, Mr. Murphy is radically amping up the dining experience at the Inn. Staying true to the luxury farm-to-table cuisine known to the Inn's restaurant, Murphy overhauled the brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Also holding true to the traditions of the restaurant, Chef Murphy will feature locally sources seafood, produce and game, featuring herbs, fruits and vegetables from the Ram's Head's own gardens. Working with bar manager Harry Brigham, Murphy added a number of new items to compliment the creative bar menu.

"Matt will complete the full fine dining/farm-to-table experience that we have provided our guests since the early 90's," said Linda Eklund, owner of the Ram's Head Inn. "His passion for food and knowledge of the abundance of 'local delicacies' make him the perfect fit for the Ram's Head."

Mr. Murphy has held positions at the Ritz Carlton, the Rainbow Room and The Russian Tea Room as sous chef, and executive chef at A.R.O.C., Broadway Grill, and La Colombe D'or. Once settled on Long Island, Murphy opened Antares Café and The Kitchen in Greenport and worked as head chef at the Jedidiah Hawkins Inn. He owes his expertise to these many notable positions as well as from his travels in Europe and time spent living in Italy.

Matt Murphy will begin his reign with the seasonal reopening of The Ram's Head Inn on April 14th, 2017.

Ram's Head Inn is located at 108 South Ram Island Drive in Shelter Island Heights.
