Chef's philosophy

Driven by innovation, sustainability—and yes, fun—Chef Christopher creates intensely modern California cuisine that reflects his light approach to both ingredients and life. He features extraordinary local seafood and grass-fed beef but when it comes to plant-based dishes, he’s at his most energetic. Driven by a zero-waste philosophy, he maximizes the resort’s garden alongside all-star local purveyors.
