Subject: Congratulations Marta!

Dear Colleagues,

Today the Marta team announced that they will be moving to Hospitality Included beginning July 14th. We couldn’t be more proud of the leadership and management team at Marta, who have worked hard to build on the amazing lessons learned from The Modern, Maialino, and North End Grill, to continue to innovate on what Hospitality Included can mean for our teams.

Just nine months since Danny named our ambitious goal of eliminating tipping in order to provide professional and financial growth in our kitchens and dining rooms, four of our restaurants have embraced Hospitality Included in a way that honors Enlightened Hospitality. We still have a ways to go, as we look to transition Blue Smoke Flatiron and BPC, Gramercy Tavern, the MoMA Cafes, Porchlight, Untitled and Studio Café. In the coming weeks, your leaders will share with you the planned rollout order for the remaining businesses, so we can provide clarity across our company regarding when each restaurant will move to Hospitality Included.

I know I speak for Danny and the entire Executive Committee when I thank all of you for the hard work you have put in – taking care of each other and our guests as we make this enormous change.

Congratulations Marta!
