Chris Crary from "Top Chef: Texas" is one of the chefs competing in season 9 of the Bravo reality cooking competition. He is from Los Angeles, California.

Chris Crary ("Top Chef") is the Chef de Cuisine for Whist restaurant at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, California. Born in a small town in Ohio, Chris decided he wanted to venture into larger cities to follow his culinary passions. He attended Johnson & Wales University in both Norfolk, Virginia, and Providence, Rhode Island, where he received his Bachelors of Science degree in Culinary Arts. From there, he journeyed to California where he trained with his chef mentor Tony DiSalvo, former Executive Chef at Jean George's in New York City. Chris incorporates Italian, Asian, and Spanish influences in his cooking, but never loses sight of the customer's culinary journey. His focus is on flavor, texture, whimsy, and creating the most memorable dining experience possible. If he were given a last supper, he says, "It would have to include biscuits and gravy, to honor my southern roots. Who doesn't have a guilty pleasure of eating a plate of biscuits and sausage gravy?"
