April 28, 2017

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla - Jim Tallman has been named Director of Dining at Devonshire at PGA National.

Tallman has enjoyed a rewarding career in food and beverage hospitality, working at Marriott Hotels' signature properties as director of restaurants, including the San Diego Marriott Marquis and the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk.

"Jim enjoys sharing his passion for food, wine, and special events with Devonshire's ambitious and eager culinary staff and the over 350 residents who live here," said Jim Wingardner, Executive Director, Devonshire at PGA National.  "We are honored Jim has joined our team."

Before joining the Devonshire team, Tallman spent six years with Tommy Bahama Restaurants. 

"In the dining industry the end of April in Florida marks the beginning of the quiet season," said Tallman.  "Line cooks all over our area find their full-time hours cut in half or even laid off.   That is not the case here at Devonshire where we always need a full staff for our five restaurants all year round.   I am very excited to be a part of this team and look forward to sharing my passion for food, wine and service with others."
