Adam Hrebiniak, Corporate Director of Culinary Services
Adam was born in Annapolis, Maryland and worked his way through Towson College as a line cook at the prestigious Polo Grill in Baltimore. There he found his true passion for the culinary arts. He attended The Baltimore International Culinary College and then spent eight months traveling through Europe studying different types of culinary philosophies.
After graduating, Adam moved to Washington D.C. to work for one of the most respected chefs on the east coast, Chef Susan Lindeborg, at the Morrison-Clark Historic Inn & Restaurant. He thrived while cooking for prominent figures such as former US Presidents, First Lady Hillary Clinton and other political dignitaries. At just 24 years old he was awarded Sous Chef status. Adam’s desire to grow as a chef brought him to San Francisco, where he spent three years perfecting his craft at Boulevard, under the leadership of award-winning chef, Nancy Oakes.
Adam’s French cuisine expertise led to a position as Sous Chef at legendary Chez Nous. His hard work paid off as he was soon opening the Berkeley Perennial Top 100 Restaurant, Zax Tavern. As the Chef de Cuisine, he learned how to run a professional establishment with relentless determination and positive reinforcement.
Two years later, Adam was invited to work under Wolfgang Puck at the famous Postrio restaurant in San Francisco. This led to his first Executive Chef Position at Belden Taverna, also in San Francisco. Belden Taverna became S.F. Weekly’s “Best Mediterranean Restaurant” in the first year under Executive Chef Hrebiniak. Adam made television and radio appearances and received the highest Zagat Guide ratings in the restaurant’s history.
During his time as Executive Chef of the historic Presidio Golf Club in San Francisco, Chef Adam Hrebiniak eagerly relocated with his wife, Abbe, to the Santa Rosa area and soon after became a part of the Varenna Community. Adam’s menus satisfy the most elegant palate through passion, simplicity and attention to detail – the same combination that has influenced his mentors, San Francisco super chefs Nancy Oakes and Wolfgang Puck . With an open mind and an open door, Chef Adam Hrebiniak will always be striving to make your dining experience special.
