After years of jumping around and weeks of unemployment, Christopher Cina is now the executive chef of six-month-old Ghost Plate & Tap, owned by Wynkoop and Breckenridge brewing companies. After getting the axe at Hideway Steakhouse in October, Cina told Westword that he's just searching for stability.
"Look, I've worked in fine-dining restaurants for over ten years, and I feel like it's just not as accessible as it used to be -- that it's a risk to continue to go in that direction -- and I'm at the point in my life where I need stability."
Cina's track record includes tentures at shuttered Fourth Story in Cherry Creek, Twig's Wine Bar and Pickles Deli inside of Tipsy's Liquor World, Timberline Grill in Ameristar Casino in Black Hawk, a stint at Jax Fish House in Denver and more recently, with Hideaway Steak House in Westminster.
