A Tribute to Brian Hirsty
We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Bluewater Grill Executive Chef Brian Hirsty. Chef Brian died March 10 after battling a rare bone marrow disease. His passing is a shock to the entire Bluewater Grill family. He is survived by his wife Amy, also a Bluewater staff member, and his son, Dylan.
Brian joined us in 1996 to open our first restaurant in Newport Beach. He went on to being an integral partner in opening eight more restaurants. We will greatly miss Brian’s compassion, gentle manner, friendship and passion for life.
Our prayers are with his family and friends who will miss his extraordinarily generous spirit both in and out of the kitchen. We will be announcing details of a public memorial service soon.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dylan Hirsty Educational Fund or Histy Family Fund, care of Joyce Martin at Bluewater Grill Newport Beach (630 Lido Park Drive, Newport Beach, 92663) or through Crowdrise
