to better understand different cultural cuisines. Early in his career, Chris spent time at Boston's French-inspired Cranebrook Restaurant and Tearoom, and, upon his arrival in New York, began cooking at the Lafayette street institution Time Café.

He was appointed executive chef at the young age of 23, which is where he began his "self-taught" education that has led him to his approach and style today. He served as executive chef at Suba and was chef and partner at Wyanoka before opening The Stanton Social in New York's Lower East Side in 2005. At Stanton Social Chris takes an imaginative approach to small plate-style cuisine, serving bold-flavored, playful dishes that draw from the neighborhood's culinary ethnicities (Latin, Asian and Eastern European). Chris also opened Beauty and Essex, his biggest restaurant to date, in December 2010.
