Chris Benson

Chef, Bone & Broth

Maker: Chef

Chef Christopher Benson brings his passion for both food history and current cuisine to our table every day. After graduating Valedictorian from The Art Institute of Atlanta in 2007 and working in a variety of kitchens in the area, Chris moved to Athens, GA to become the Chef of Trappeze Pub and later open South Kitchen+Bar with the same group. He relocated to Asheville in 2017 and joined our family at Bone and Broth soon afterward. He takes his love of regional American and New South cuisine and applies it through the lens of traditional European cooking methods to create each dish with intentionality and passion. He welcomes you and the ones you love to our tables to enjoy the best food, drink, and new memories together.
