Born in Dover New Hampshire and raised on the beach in Maine, Gary’s love & passion for coastal cuisine took flight. After moving to southern California at age 24, Gary soon realized that his knowledge of east coast & west coast cuisines, paired with a newfound love for wine, could be the perfect restaurant concept.
While living in Huntington Beach, Gary worked primarily as a bar manager, perfecting the art of proper service in order to one day put it all together. Working alongside some of southern California’s best chefs was all the schooling Gary would need to bring his dream to life.
Now in Texas and owner of Christina’s Bistro on the historic Granbury square, Gary and wife Katie have fused together a wonderful balance of cuisine and service, focusing on fresh seafood’s, meats and creative blends of their upbringings. With an evolving menu focusing on dishes like butter poached lobster, shrimp & grits and prime rib, Gary has found a home in Granbury, introducing his style of food to the great folks of Texas.
