Christopher Hill, architect, developer and occasional preservationist, refers to himself as the “reluctant restaurateur” and swears that he restored and reopened The Esquire Tavern against his better instincts. The quality of the tavern’s food and drink and the obvious care lavished on the renovation belies Chris’s purported second thoughts. The team he has assembled to put The Esquire back on the map is meeting his high expectations… and then some. Chris’s other projects include Sendero Ranch, Retablo Ranch, San Antonio Loan and Trust Building, the Gallagher Headquarters and St Benedict's Lofts.
