Adam grew up in NY kitchens. He worked with his dad in his family’s gourmet sandwich shop in Brooklyn, as well as a 200-seat cafe in Tribeca. Adam went on to own and operate The New York Fun Factory, one of the largest special events production companies on the East Coast. Adam then attended the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) to hone his craft. He has since worked in some of the country’s most critically acclaimed restaurants, including Long Island’s four-star Panama Hatties in Huntington, NY.
“Cooking is about sharing passion and joy to people I'm feeding," says Adam. His penchant for quality and creativity consistently attracts loyal clientele and rave reviews. The New York Times awarded Adam three stars during his tenure as Executive Chef at Sugo in Long Beach. He has since owned two successful barbeque restaurants and a gourmet burger restaurant. Most recently, he opened a full-service golf course catering facility and restaurant, serving signature dishes that are always exciting.
On the business side, Adam has served as a consultant for the opening of Bottomzup Bar and Grill, a multimillion-dollar sports bar chain.
Adam has appeared on The Food Network's popular competition shows “Chopped,” and “Restaurant Express,” hosted by celebrity chef Robert Irvine.
