A graduate from Le Cordon Bleu of the Western Culinary Institute, Chef Adam Kirby, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, is the chef and co-owner of Rustic Table and Bistro 217 on Pawleys Island – an establishment he’s been with since it opened in 2004. Pulling inspiration from both his Southern roots – both his mother and grandmother where fantastic home cooks – and time spent in Hawaii, Portland and San Francisco, Chef Kirby’s regularly changing menu incorporates locally sourced eclectic elements, making his dishes exciting, flavorful, and most of all, memorable.

Chef Kirby was recently named one of the 2017 South Carolina Chef Ambassadors by the SCPRT.
