Morris attended the University of Central Florida and Florida Atlantic University and is a member of the Club Managers Association of America.
“Spruce Point Inn is recognized as one of the top dining spots along the Maine coast and benefits substantially from the memories we create through our dining experience when it comes to guest satisfaction and repeat stays,” said innkeeper Angelo DiGiulian in making the announcement. “We look forward to adding Robert’s club and restaurant management experience to the mix and anticipate that the combination of his experience and Chef Peter Stiles award-winning creativity will help us polish that reputation even further.”
Mr. Morris will oversee operations for the Inn’s three restaurants: 88, Bogie’s and Deck. 88, the dining room in the historic Main Inn serves Maine Coast Cuisine in a bright and casually elegant space with views of the ocean. Bogie’s is a casual bistro in a clubbier space with copper-topped tables and the convivial atmosphere of a New England tavern.
