About Tim Rawding

Tim’s career in hospitality really began under his mother’s supervision 20+ years ago while doing dishes for dinner parties at their family home. Several years later, while working for a production company at a local music venue, Tim found himself involved in the purchase of wine & spirits for musicians. Tim soon established a bond with the employees at the local wine shop and a passion for wine and hospitality was formed. After spending a year in restaurant management in Asbury Park, NJ with Kitschens Hospitality, Tim gravitated to the bright lights of the big city. During his time in New York City, Tim served as Sommelier and Director of Education at OTTO Enoteca & Pizzeria, opened Michael White’s acclaimed steakhouse Costata as a Sommelier, and most recently worked as a Sommelier at Daniel Boulud’s Lincoln Center restaurants Bar Boulud and Boulud Sud. Tim has received his Level 3 Advanced Certification from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) and has passed the Certified Sommelier (CS) exam from the Court of Master Sommeliers. In 2016 Tim joined the Marsh House team to bring a unique yet comforting experience in hospitality to the Thompson Hotel.
