ADAM CLOSE
Executive Chef

For Blossom Executive Chef Adam Close, orchestrating the flow of Blossom's open kitchen on a busy night in downtown Charleston is exhilarating. With the restaurant's reputation and prime location on historic East Bay Street, Close knows that his dining room is filled with both locals and visitors and he is enthusiastic to reinforce why Charleston, South Carolina is one of the South's most popular gastronomic destinations.


A graduate of the University of Tennessee, the Nashville native began his career in the restaurant industry as a line cook while working towards a degree in criminal justice. It was the fast-paced environment which initially attracted Close to the kitchen, and as he sharpened his skills, his passion for cooking emerged. Motivated to pursue the culinary field full-time, Close headed east to attend Johnson & Wales University in Charleston and began a three year position as head line cook at fellow Hospitality Management Group, Inc. restaurant, Magnolias.


Close left Charleston in 2003 to train in the high intensity Atlanta kitchens of two of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group's top venues - the four-star, four-diamond flagship restaurant Pano's & Paul's and the highly praised Italian venture, Veni, Vidi, Vici. Under Pano's & Paul's renowned chef Gary Donalick, Close's palate evolved and he learned to focus on exposing ingredients' natural flavors by enhancing them with simple preparations - a talent that he now brings to the menu at Blossom. After three years in Atlanta, Close was drawn back to the Lowcountry by the burgeoning culinary community and its growing commitment to sustainable seafood and local harvests. With Blossom, Close can focus on both.
