Chef Adrianne's Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar

11510 SW 147th Ave. Kendall, FL 33196 | South Dade | 305-408-8386

Location 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.
