Cambridge/Boston - Royal Sonesta Boston announces the addition of Chef Jim Booth as its new Restaurant Chef at ArtBar. A New England native, Booth is a graduate of Johnson & Wales, has worked at Pigalle, The Green Monkey, and most recently Verve at the Crowne Plaza, Natick, MA. Booth has been honored to cook dinner at the James Beard Foundation in NYC and brings an appreciation for seasonal New England product to the table.

Booth’s first foray into the kitchen was shucking oysters at Hampton Beach, NH. That love for oysters has only grown and he anticipates adding more oyster dishes to ArtBar’s waterfront patio menu. “Our location alongside the Charles River is amazing. I naturally am thinking about oysters and introducing a variety of fun, approachable snacks perfect for relaxing out on the patio.”  Look for a variety of sliders that are “ooey, gooey with liquid gold cheddar” and more toppings. Booth is now in the kitchen creating dishes for ArtBar’s early spring menus which are set to be released shortly, hopefully just around the corner.
