A third generation chef of Spanish and Italian descent, and hailing from Paris, France, Christophe’s restaurant career began at 17 in the kitchen of his father’s restaurant in Pasadena when they first emigrated to the USA.

Upon returning to Southern California in 2011, Christophe spent 8 years as the Managing Partner of Eddie V’s Prime Seafood in La Jolla. Here he deepened his knowledge of sourcing and cooking the freshest seafood available, while delivering world class service.

Today, Christophe returns to his roots in the kitchen as the Executive Chef and Owner of Beeside Balcony in old Del Mar and La Jolla village. The laid back coastal vibe of these seaside towns, combined with the attention to detail from Christophe’s fine dining background, infuses Beeside Balcony with an easy elegance that elevates any gathering, and makes the perfect backdrop to showcase his Global Mediterranean menu.
