CAFÉ MANAGER, NATHANIEL PARKER
Q. Congratulations on your new title of Café Manager and overseeing the front of the house at the TPC. What are some of your initial challenges and goals?
Thank you, I am very grateful for the opportunity and very excited for big changes on the horizon. With Jameson at the helm, my main goal is to provide the highest quality of service and ensure a seamless experience for everyone who comes to the café. Please come to me with any concerns or requests; I love to find solutions and I promise you my full effort and attention.
Q. You have been at the TPC since last year what are your thoughts of the club so far?
The Club is a fantastic resource and a beautiful environment; I have come to understand the significance of this place as a central hub in the community and in our members’ lives and I am grateful to be a part of it.
Q. You were a student at Cal, what were you studying and what are your plans?
I returned to Tiburon due to family circumstances and I am on personal leave from studying Engineering Physics at Berkeley. I’m one year from completing my Bachelor’s and I plan to go back the year after next, my focus involves applications of novel materials in water purification.
Q. What do you see for the bar as a short term objective?
We’re working on setting up a secondary line for drinks only; this should expedite and simplify service during our busiest times. I’m also very excited to be featuring some new wines; Twenty Rows Cabernet and Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc are currently trying out for our lineup and are contending very well. Long-term, I’m working toward having a really solid, high-quality wine list with a balanced range of options as well as some uniquely refreshing cocktails.
Q. What hobbies and activities do you enjoy when you are not working?
I love hiking, backpacking, and watching lectures with my cat. I also enjoy the occasional music venue or casual card game.
