Bay Area Brasserie

Adam Keough and Pastry Chef Bill Corbett
Absinthe Brasserie & Bar, San Francisco

Adam Keough may hail from the East Coast, but this JBF Rising Star Chef semifinalist distinguished himself in the Bay Area’s dining scene under the tutelage of the legendary Michael Mina. At their Beard House debut, Keough and pastry chef Bill Corbett will spotlight their minimalist but elegant approach to classic French fare.
