Christine Lees




One of the greatest names in South Florida dining has come to Gulfstream Park! Simple in its beauty, the radiance of a single blossom captivated ancient cultures. This is the chrysanthemum, revered for centuries, and expressed today in the lasting creation of one extraordinary woman. So aptly named for this symbol of the passion and power of life.

Enjoy succulent prime sirloin steaks, a sushi bar and other Asian-inspired creations.  Culinary artistry meets casual elegance at the new CHRISTINE LEE’S.

Christine Lee’s is open for lunch and dinners. Our hours vary daily. Please call 954-457-6255 for current hours.  Lunch is also served daily from noon to four on  the live racing days. In addition to our delicious cuisine and welcoming ambiance, we offer a full-liquor bar.

We accept reservations for parties of 4 or more and invite you to reserve space for private parties where you and your guests can enjoy the pleasure of dining at CHRISTINE LEE’S in a very elegant setting. We hope that you will share your next dining experience with us.


Since 1970, the restaurant has had three locations in Sunny Isles Beach. After staying in the Golden Strand for four years, the restaurant moved to the Thunder Bird Resort Motel, and finally in 1995 to a shopping plaza at 17082 Collins Ave., where it remained until it closed.


Today, Christine Lee’s is in the hands of her daughter Mary, who inherited her mother’s zest and passion for her guests’ supreme enjoyment of the time they share. Mary Lee remembered her mother as a gracious host who dressed up in a variety of Chinese dresses when she worked. She recalled her mother becoming acquainted with some of the stars, including Lucille Ball, with whom she played backgammon for hours in the back of the dining room.
