Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar
Adrianne Calvo is the owner of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar – a concept inspired by Calvo’s time in Napa Valley working under chef Thomas Keller and chef Cindy Pawlcyn. She attended Johnson & Wales University, through which she competed in more than 40 national competitions and became the youngest person to cook for the United Nations. After graduating, Calvo began to work under executive chef Patrick Lassaque of the Ritz Carton in Paris and at Mandarin Oriental, before opening her restaurant in 2007. In 2009, Calvo became the spokesperson for Panda Kitchen and Bath, providing her with increasing television exposure on her weekly cooking segments with NBC’s 6 in the Mix and Univision. Calvo has also published books to include: Maximum Flavor, Driven by Flavor Fueled by Fire. In 2006, Calvo established the Make It Count Foundation, which benefits children suffering from cancer and their families. To date, she has partnered with over a dozen charitable organizations, made several national TV appearances to include Chopped and received several awards and recognitions. Her restaurant is located in West Kendall and is known as a “hidden gem” and notably a destination dining must.
