Christian Gabriel

General Manager

General Manager Christian Gabriel, a New Jersey native, joined The Palm in 2009 as Beverage Manager and has been on an upward trajectory ever since. “We’re passionate about connecting with our guests and the community,” he says. In 2016, when Hurricane Matthew hit Orlando causing power failures, “Fifteen of our employees worked through the hurricane, serving locals at the restaurant.” For Christian, that day underscored what originally drew him to the company. He continues, “The Palm is a great family, and we’re all here to help each other.” As part of the local community, the restaurant offers ongoing support to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and raises money for local schools. Says Christian, “The community is loyal to us, and we want to demonstrate our loyalty to them.”
