Chris González

General Manager

ChrisG.jpgChris González is the newest member of our restaurant  family, joining us just in time to welcome the world and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.  Chris is well known in the Vancouver culinary scene, both for his restaurant management experience and for his savory repartee.


A consummate professional, Chris joins db Bistro Moderne (and sister restaurant Lumière) after a two-year tenure as Restaurant Manager at Robson Street’s CinCin Ristorante + Bar.


A graduate of Vancouver’s venerable Top Table restaurant group, Chris brings passion, culinary savvy and gracious hospitality to Lumière.


Chris has long been an active participant in British Columbia’s hospitality arena, serving as General Manager of Yaletown’s Villa del Lupo Restaurant and as a representative of Canadian Winery of the Year Summerhill Estate Winery in Kelowna.  Chris is an avid traveler and all-around culinary enthusiast, and he leverages that experience and enthusiasm to inspire staff, elevate expectations and deliver memorable Five Diamond Service to compliment the superlative cuisine of Chefs Boulud, MacKay and Guggenheimer.

Chris is an accomplished food and wine writer whose words have graced the pages of Vancouver Magazine, Georgia Straight, Vancouver City Guide and the Eating & Drinking Guide.  He has also served previously as a judge for Vancouver Magazine’s esteemed Restaurant Awards.  His keen eye, discerning palate and boundless enthusiasm make him a welcome addition to the db Bistro family.


Chris invites you  to experience "a gastronomical experience unlike anything else in the city."  Please inquiry directly via email or by telephone at 604.739.7115
