Chris Whitman

General Manager, Uchiko

Chris was born in Manhattan, and moved to Texas when he was 15. He attended the University of Texas at Arlington and worked in the music business in Los Angeles before moving to Austin and taking a job as a server assistant at Uchiko in 2011. He became assistant general manager in 2013. When he’s not at work, Chris spends time with his wife Lyndzee (Corporate Relief Manager at Hai Hospitality), going to movies, hanging out with their dogs, and eating and drinking around town. Justine’s is his top spot in Austin. Mr Chow in Los Angeles lands atop his list for favorite in the world, though he admits the choice “is really a nostalgia thing.”
