CEO, COJE Management Group
One of the most well-known names on the Boston restaurant scene, Chris Jamison entered the field in 2010 with his first property, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar, one of the initial players in the now-crowded local market of upscale Mexican restaurants. A young, informed, and eager trendsetter, Chris envisioned Lolita to be a new destination for Boston’s upwardly mobile – a place blending polished dining and custom cocktails with buzzy, club-like surroundings. In 2015, he opened Yvonne’s to elevate the restaurant/party hybrid concept even further, pioneering the modern supper club and providing discerning hospitality through high-touch service, food, and drink. Chris opened RUKA in 2016 and introduced Bostonians to the unique flavors of Peruvian Nikkei cuisine. In 2019, Chris debuted a Cuban-inspired rendition of an elegant restaurant with the opening of Mariel, and its accompanying nightclub, Underground. Coquette is a coastal French-inspired and slightly irreverent brasserie located at the new Omni Boston Hotel at Seaport, alongside a grab & go bakery café in the Omni lobby called Cocorico. And his most recent concept, Caveau, is an otherworldly subterranean nightclub oasis.
