Christine Wright, Hearth Restaurant – Dinner, Cocktails, Brunch in the East Village

Christine Wright

General Manager + Wine Director

Christine has always had a love of hospitality. As the oldest of five children, she cooked a good portion of the family dinners from a young age, under her mother's watchful eye. Learning the family recipes and bringing everyone together at the dinner table played a major role in her childhood, and created some of her very best memories.

After attending college at Boston University, she moved to New York in 2005, and immediately fell into a job at Blue Water Grill of BR Guest Hospitality Group. Though the job was tough, it provided her with a strong foundation in front-of-house skills. After stints at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain, and Sfoglia on the Upper East Side, Christine was hired at Hearth as a bartender. Having not had much previous bartending experience, she was thrilled at the prospect. This role played a huge part in her beverage education, and really opened her eyes to the world of wine. With Paul Grieco as her mentor, she moved up the ranks to manager, then service director and bar manager, and finally to general manager and wine director, her current roles at Hearth.
