RIVIERA BEACH, SINGER ISLAND, Fla., Oct. 11, 2018 — Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa has named James King new executive chef at 3800 Ocean, the resort’s award-winning signature restaurant.

With extensive experience crafting distinctive dishes in South Florida, King has worked at some of the region’s most notable dining destinations, including Miami Four Seasons, Delray Sands Resort and The Breakers.

While serving as executive sous chef at One Ocean Resort & Spa, he was also invited to New York City to cook at the James Beard House.

One of the most popular waterfront restaurants in West Palm Beach, 3800 Ocean has gained a well-earned reputation for offering delicious seasonal, locally sourced American cuisine, along with an extensive wine list and fine spirits. According to Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island General Manage Roger Amidon, King will further enhance 3800 Ocean’s reputation as one of the top Singer Island restaurants by bringing a wealth of knowledge in successfully conceiving and executing top-quality menus that exceed guest expectations.
