Alice Christner | Restaurateur | Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster
“Christner’s has become a local icon since the family-owned restaurant opened 25 years ago. But co-owner Alice Christner doesn’t just serve up high-end dining experiences. She serves the community.
‘The Christner family is committed to giving back locally and believes their work with partner foundations fosters a healthy and growing community in Central Florida,’ her nomination reads. Christner supports a multitude of Central Florida organizations and charitable events, including the MDA Toast to Life Gala; Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families; Ali’s Hope Foundation; and Restore the Roar, an ’80s-themed event that benefits the Winter Park High School Foundation.
‘I see my role as one of encouragement to help lift up and support my community and its members. I hope that I have encouraged my family and friends to realize their blessings and demonstrate a pattern of paying it forward,’ she says.
The restaurateur—who wears a number of hats on the job—is credited for her role in the success and reputation of Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster, which has won numerous local, regional and national awards. Says the nomination: ‘Alice’s innovative practice is to stay true to their roots, brand and high standards without bending to every whim or trend in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Christner’s is a classic steakhouse that wishes to celebrate a timeless commitment to quality food and service.'”
