About Jay Murray

After heading up a 4 diamond hotel kitchen, then cooking at the helm of one of Boston's premier restaurants for 18 years, Jay was asked to leave to pursue treatment and recovery for pancreatic cancer. Ellis Square Social is his return and features his cuisine at its pinnacle (so far), combining an large and eclectic menu of sharable plates with an a la carte menu featuring akaushi beef steaks, Brandt beef steaks and family raised duroc pork, making ESQ the envy of the finest steakhouses, period.
