Chris Cannon brings more than 30 years of New York restaurant industry experience and nationally recognized wine expertise to Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen. Each of his five N.Y.C. restaurants–Judson Grill, L’Impero, Alto, Convivio and Marea–received three stars from The New York Times. In 2010, his businesses received five prestigious Michelin stars, more than any one U.S. restaurant group.
Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen features locally sourced ingredients from Cannon's partnership with Mantoloking's Forty North Oyster Farms and other purveyors such as Chester's Flocktown Farm and Let it Grow Farm in Pittstown. The restaurant houses an impressive contemporary art collection commissioned specifically for the space from acclaimed international artists, including Emil Alzamora, Ilan Averbuch, Terry Haggerty and Michael Zelehoski. Since its opening, JHBK has raised more than $300,000 for an array of local nonprofits serving families, children, health, the arts and education. A list of the organizations that have benefitted is below.
A Manhattan native, Cannon lives with his family in Mountain Lakes NJ, where he is an excellent cook, gardener and cyclist.
