Marc Murphy: Owner & Executive Chef
Ask Chef Marc Murphy where he grew up and he’ll fire off a list of cosmopolitan locations – Milan, Paris, Villefranche, Washington DC, Rome and Genoa – “and that’s before I turned 12,” he’ll explain. For some, growing up the son of a globetrotting diplomat might have been stressful, yet for Murphy, this dizzying list of hometowns served as an excellent education in French and Italian cuisine, and afforded him the luxury of learning from a young age just how much he loved the world of cooking and of restaurants. In March 2004, Murphy opened his first solo enterprise with Landmarc [Tribeca], which won rave reviews both for its eclectic French and Italian menu and for its highly untraditional wine list. Now Executive Chef and owner of all the Benchmarc restaurants, which include Landmarc at Time Warner Center (opened May 2007) and Ditch Plains (opened May 2006), Murphy is hoping to continue growing his empire.
