Chef / Owner
Raised in Walla Walla, Washington, Chef Michael Corvino was immersed in the seasonal living of the beautiful Northwest. He always loved being active, so it's no surprise his first delve into the culinary world was when he was a teenager; first at a pizza place, then onto the Marcus Whitman Hotel. He quickly moved to Chicago where he was the chef de cuisine of The Peninsula Hotel. Following tours included the Ritz-Carlton Naples; opening the culinary operations of The Nines hotel in Portland, including the two restaurants Urban Farmer and Departure; sous chef at The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas; and executive chef and general manager of The American Restaurant in Kansas City. He began working on Corvino in 2016 and opened in April 2017. When not in his kitchen, Chef Corvino prefers to spend time outdoors with Christina and their family and friends. He also enjoys taking part in nonprofit fundraising dinners locally and across the country where he finds the opportunity to serve communities and collaborate with other chefs. He loves to travel home and abroad, exploring local markets and the finest restaurants to inspire and challenge his own creativity.
Owner / GM / Sommelier
Christina Corvino lives a winding life of curiosity. Originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, her background includes nonprofit and for-profit fundraising, producing large entertainment events, developing marketing campaigns, leading humanitarian teams to West Africa, and she started out her professional life as a US Air Force officer. This compilation perfectly prepared her for the multi-roles of General Manager. You'll find her hands in hospitality training, PR and marketing, the music program, all the little details, and of course on the floor of the dining room almost every night. As our Wine Director she coordinates our Raven's Nest Winemaker Dinner Series, as well as curates our wine lists, selects pairings for the Tasting Room, and educates the staff. Christina is a Certified Sommelier, and a 2019 James Beard Foundation Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellow. Christina's favorite days have family, friends, dogs, horses, sunshine, cheese, and a glass of something sparkly.
