Chef Christopher Lee
Chef Christopher Lee began his career at age 14 in his hometown on Long Island, “I always had that sort of sixth sense about food,” Lee says. “I always knew that I wanted to be a Chef. In high school, I used to ditch classes just to watch cooking shows on TV.”
Lee Graduated from the prestigious California Culinary Academy and then went on to hone his culinary talents in some of the country’s most prestigious restaurants, including New York City’s Restaurant Daniel and Jean Georges, and San Francisco’s Fifth Floor.
As Sous Chef at New York’s Oceana, where he worked under Cornelius Gallagher, Lee was integral in redefining the restaurant’s approach to the elegant dining experience. Awarded three stars by the New York Times, the New York Post proclaimed Oceana to be “The city’s best seafood restaurant.”
Selected by Gotham Bar and Grill’s Alfred Portale to be the chef de cuisine at Stephen Starr’s remake of the legendary Striped Bass in Philadelphia, Lee quickly rose to the position of Executive Chef, putting his personal style on all culinary aspects of the restaurant. Under his direction, Striped Bass received widespread critical acclaim, including a highly coveted Four Bells review from the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Best New American Restaurant 2004” in Travel + Leisure, and Gourmet selected it as one of the country’s top restaurants in 2006.
In 2005, Lee was named the James Beard Foundations’ “Rising Star Chef of the Year,” and in 2006 was among Food and Wine’s “Top Ten Best New Chefs.” Returning to New York as Executive Chef of Gilt, Lee earned the restaurant two Michelin stars. In December 2008, Lee was selected by Charlie Palmer to take command of Aureole’s kitchen, just in time for the restaurant’s spring landmark move to the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park. “Christopher Lee could not be a better fit for Aureole with his modern American palate, New York roots and bold approach to flavors and wine,” says Palmer.
Since the grand opening, Chef Lee has brought unparalleled success to Aureole including a 29 food rating in Zagat, the highest in NYC for 2009. Additionally, Chef Lee was a contestant on the premiere season of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and is currently the consulting chef for Orange County Choppers Roadhouse, a full service restaurant, bar, microbrewery, and entertainment experience based on the extraordinarily popular Orange County Choppers brand.
In addition to the following the seasons and the latest culinary trends, Lee finds inspiration in abstract art, which is evident in his plating techniques. Rather than building presentations in the center of the plate, Lee prefers to use the lines, spaces, colors and shapes of the various components of a dish to create a new abstract dining aesthetic. Through juxtaposing soft and crunchy textures, and sweet and sour flavors, Lee’s creations give diners a different experience with each bite.
