About Adam Keough

Adam Keough is the Executive Chef at Absinthe Brasserie & Bar.

This type of hands-on education is important to him and he views it as a crucial part in his career.

Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Negroni
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, French, Full Bar, Bar, Civic Center
"My favorite drink of all time is Campari and soda. Unfortunately, the weather in SF is usually not appropriate for such a beverage, so the Negroni has become a close second favorite of mine. The proportions are always perfect, and the burnt orange peel garnish is an especially nice touch."
