The Team

Ditch Plains (Upper West Side) is that rare mixture of family-friendly Upper West Side restaurant, awesome surfer bar, casual Sunday brunch spot and perfect party place and the 42-seat wonder Ditch Plains (West Village) has become one of the greatest downtown bars, brunch spots, late-night dining places and everything in between. General Manager Hayley Stitham and Executive Chef Julio Rodriguez helm the Upper West Side location and Shelly Williamson handles everything at the West Village one.

Meet Marc Murphy

Part worldly epicure, part laid-back surfer, Marc Murphy fell in love with French and Italian cuisine during a childhood spent living throughout Europe. He went on to work in some of the most highly esteemed kitchens in the world from Paris to Monte Carlo and today is one of New York’s most celebrated chefs.
