In the mean time, here is a message from Charlie:
Despite feeling like perpetual winter, all the signs of spring are showing. Daffodils and crocus are beginning to make their appearance and the much-needed rain combined with warmer days sandwiched between extreme cold spells are part of what we expect in Northern Nevada.
Before we get cooking, I would like all of you to reserve July 10 and get online to purchase your tickets for the 11th annual Concert Under the Stars, benefiting the Greenhouse Project.
Since its inception, TGP has provided agriculture education to our areas students and hasn’t only rebirthed an ag program at Carson High School that had gone defunct in 2000 but has produced one of the most accomplished FFA ag teams in the nation. Many of our students, including those with learning challenges, have gone on to employment in the new ag economy, taking with them their knowledge of the latest growing techniques, leadership and business skills.
Welcome to Cafe at Adele’s
Carson City’s dining and gathering spot
*** 2017 Diners’ Choice Award ***
Cafe at Adele’s has a rich history that extends back to 1977, when the restaurant was first established by Paul and Adele Abowd, parents of fourth-generation and award-winning Chef Charlie Abowd, who today co-owns the restaurant with wife Karen.
Step through the doors of this beautifully restored 1864 Comstock Mansart Victorian to fully experience the manifestation of true partnership the couple is known for. Karen’s eye for design and creativity are manifest in the restaurant’s decor, as is her commitment to supporting local arts, noted in the various displays presented by Artsy-Fartsy Gallery.
She has found the perfect balance between luxury chic and casual comfort, creating a warm and inviting space in which to enjoy Charlie’s perfectly plated culinary delights.
Charlie’s culinary skills are known well beyond Carson City. He was invited to cook at the legendary James Beard house in New York City, a huge honor and challenge. Charlie and his crew delivered a wonderful meal to rave reviews. You can watch a video of the memorable evening here.
In 2014, and in recent years, Cafe at Adele’s received a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and was recognized by Nevada Business Magazine’s 2014 Family-owned Business Awards in the “Don’t Forget to Share” category, which recognizes a business that has made significant contributions to the community and prides itself on giving back. Adele’s also was awarded multiple Diners’ Choice Awards, including for 2018. Karen and Charlie also join the Loving Hearts Club in Reno, feeding the area’s homeless.
Cafe at Adele’s is the local community’s first choice for celebrating special moments and a haven for Nevada’s movers and shakers during each Legislative Session. Whether it’s a lovely beginning to the day with breakfast, a gathering of friends at lunch or an evening of romance for dinner, Cafe at Adele’s provides an unforgettable dining experience that brings locals and out-of-state visitors through its doors time and again.
