Ruth's Chris Charlotte Uptown


Chris Danko
General Manager

Chris Danko

Chris fell in love with food before he could remember.  His grandmother had a large role in his passion by teaching him family recipes at an early age.  After high school Chris enlisted into the USAF to serve his country after 9/11.  After his enlistment Chris went back to school and earned a degree in Hospitality Management.  He has worked in many cities throughout the United States but now calls Charlotte his home.  He currently lives in the Lake Norman area and enjoys fishing and golf.  We are pleased to welcome him to our Ruth’s Chris Uptown team.

District Chef

B. Timothy Bowen

Chef Timothy Bowen started cooking 20 years ago in Charlotte, North Carolina. He grew to love and appreciate the Culinary Arts while working out of necessity and decided to make it his career. Inspired by his late father who cooked family dinners often and used Timothy to prep at a young age, he fell in love with food. After attending Culinary School, Chef Bowen focused on Italian, French, and Contemporary Southern Cuisines, working in mostly scratch kitchens where Timothy gained the knowledge and skill set needed to be successful in this challenging industry.  He enjoys playing golf, spending time with family and watching sports in his spare time.
