Norton Christopher

Beverage Director of Hot Tails Restaurant Group

Highly effective food and beverage professional with 20 years of experience. My experience ranges from casual and fine dining establishments, corporate restaurants, neighborhood bars and high end cocktail bars. In addition to operations, I have a significant amount of experience and insight with the design, development, and opening of new establishments. My prominent focus throughout my food and beverage career has been the bar and front of house, and I have ample experience with food and the back of house. I have worked diligently and intentionally on developing a well-rounded career and unique approach, and I bring my love and experience from the farm, to the bar and kitchen.
