Meet Chris Basile
With a booming laugh and a beaming smile – Chris can be found on the Boston Fish Pier every day.
His passion for cooking and fish started as a young man, Chris sold boxes of fish to tourists in Scituate, where two of his brothers were commercial fishermen. In 1978, he and his brothers bought a small store in Waltham, a store Basile describes as an “old mom-and-pop type grocery store.” Then when a building in Maynard came up for sale in 1981, Basile and his brothers bought it, renovated it and started Quarterdeck Seafoods, selling fish and takeout dinners. They expanded the dining room and kitchen three times, going from takeout to a full-service restaurant.
“If you can cook fish you can cook anything,” he said.
In 1999 Chris started SeaWitch Inc. and after selling his Maynard seafood retail location in 2019, he moved over to SeaWitch full time. “What is better than getting to share my love of fish and my knowledge of the restaurant industry?” Chris said, “I should have done this years ago!”
