New Zealand lamb, Alaskan salmon with brown sugar crust garlic and sweet chili aioli, and wild corvina with Sicilian pistachio and truffle butter are not the usual menu items for a strip-mall restaurant in West Kendall. But for eight years, Adrianne Calvo, 31, has kept many of her 60 seats filled while writing four books, appearing on television and winning local, regional and national chef competitions. She opened Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in 2007 just as the South Florida economy was imploding.
Filled with the love for food at a young age, Adrianne focused her efforts on her one true aspiration, cooking. At age 27, Adrianne has enjoyed an incredible number of accolades during her remarkable journey in becoming a nationally acclaimed chef.

Fit for the Magic City’s trendiest neighborhoods, but at home in the corner of an off-beat strip mall in middle-class Miami, Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Wine Bar is one of South Florida’s best-kept secrets. Small and unassuming, with a casual, but intimate dining room just big enough for a handful of tables, the ambiance is both cozy and inviting. Led by none other than the culinary genius, Adrianne Calvo — who was inspired by the food, wine and landscapes she discovered during her travels through Napa Valley — her restaurant is a reflection of everything she knows and loves about wine country in The Golden State.
