Featured Chef - Adam Greenberg


Meet Chef Adam:

Adam Greenberg is the Food Networks all-time winningest competitor with a 5-1 record. He is the four-time, Grand Chopped Champion, as well as taking down Bobby Flay, on Beat Bobby Flay where he has also appeared as a judge. He finished runner-up on Guy’s Grocery Games, and soon will be seen on Alex vs. American on the Food Network.

Adam is an advocate of using his platform to help local and national charities, and was most recently the owner of Coconut Club in Washington, DC, which unfortunately closed during the pandemic. Adam has moved back to his home state of CT and is now a partner in new restaurant Sparrow located in West Hartford Center.

“I am volunteering with Gather 55 because I truly believe in the comfort a meal can bring to someone, regardless of their backgrounds. The table has always been a place where I have gathered with my friends, family, and strangers, but, we’ve always come together to share stories, and simply enjoy a great meal together. As a chef, I’ve never taken for granted the idea that something I do, like cooking a meal, can truly brighten someone’s day, and perhaps, create a memory for them. I look forward to being a small part of the greater good that Gather 55 is doing, and I truly hope people will enjoy the dishes.”
