Dallas - Executive Chef
Chef Christian Stewart joins The Oceanaire Seafood Room Dallas with deep southern roots and a love for farm-to-table cuisine. The Louisiana native began his culinary career at age 17 by shucking oysters and peeling shrimp as an apprentice while working at a lakefront restaurant in Pontchartrain. His fascination for cooking intensified with the support of his family who lured him to their restaurant business in Dallas. Christian eventually moved to Montana to learn and cultivate on a working urban farm at the 2nd Street Bistro under the watchful eye of chef/owner Brian Menges. Stewart excelled his way to his first Executive position by bringing some southern influence and unique flavorings to the northwest. Eventually chef Christian heard the call to return south and continue his growth and development with The Oceanaire Seafood Room in Dallas.
“I am thrilled to be a part of this outstanding team and look forward to a prosperous future,” he says. “Locally sourced food has high value in the eyes of chefs as well as guests, and I aim to bring as much to the table as possible.”
