Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar
Kendall, FL 33196
Miami New Times' Description
This 60-seater in the Hammocks area of West Kendall is owned and operated by chef Adrianne Calvo, who at a very young age already has two cookbooks, a line of foods, and a modicum of fame. Wine bottles, wine barrels, dim lighting, and dark wood accents create the cozy, rustic charm of a country inn. Prices are great -- appetizers $9 to $11, main courses $18 to $22 (except a $12 linguine and $34 lobster tail). Hefty wedges of bourbon-ancho rubbed pork tenderloin were softly engaging. Chicken breast stuffed with cremini mushrooms and provolone cheese was likewise gratifying. Diners get a full, generous meal, too, for main courses come accompanied by roasted or mashed potatoes and asparagus spears. But still, the menu's two other meats, three seafoods, and single pasta dish constitute a dull, Continental-style cuisine lipsticked with faux fusion modernities such as ancho, mango, and black bean sauce. The wine selection isn't much for a vineyard restaurant/wine bar, and desserts are amateurish. Adrianne's is an affordable, low-key neighborhood restaurant that doesn't meet expectations of such a heralded chef, but it isn't a bad place to dine.
Tips from foursquare
Though the entrees are exceptional, appetizers like meaty crab cakes and slow-roasted pork wontons with guava sauce make a superb small-plates meal. Via CityEats.com
Super generous portion sizes, had to taste everyone else food because it all looked so good and the fresh sangria to wash it all down with was worth it all!
Honestly the best meal you will ever have. Slightly over priced, but totally worth it. Ideal Meal: Filet Mignon Tips. Strawberry Fields Sundae for dessert.
Omg! Best steak I've ever had. I swear I think it was injected with flavor from heaven at every square inch. To die for! South Beach prices with European Quality. See her website, and menu, google it
It's a small gem in Kendall and the food is delicious! The organic heirloom tomato soup tastes great and the crab cakes are a delight. A must try if nearby!
