Adam Wolfers has been a big name in Brisbane's hospitality scene since 2019, when he became Gerard's Bistro's Head Chef. In his new gig, he'll have his fingerprints all over not just one huge River City restaurant, but several. Anyday, the hospitality crew behind Agnes, Biànca, sAme sAme and hôntô, has just announced Wolfers as its new Group Chef.

All four of the aforementioned eateries are among Brisbane's best restaurants — and they'll now benefit from Wolfers' talents, as will fellow Anyday venues LOS (sAme sAme's cocktail bar) and Agnes Bakery (Agnes' woodfired pastry offshoot). The chef left Gerard's Bistro in 2023, after multiple health issues, including a stroke. Now, he's ready for a new challenge.

"Adam comes to us with a wealth of experience, both celebrated and broad-ranging. We're thrilled to be bringing him into the Anyday fold and have no doubt he'll boost the culinary experience at all our venues," said chef Ben Williamson, one of Anyday's founders, announcing the news.

"Adam and I share a common love of great, fundamental cooking and surprising flavour combinations, which align with our vision for Anyday's stable of restaurants. The group looks forward to the evolution of our existing and future venues under Adam's mentorship and guidance."

Before his time at Gerard's Bistro — where he stepped into Williamson's shoes at the time — Wolfers came up in the kitchens of Sydney's Est. and Marque, then worked in New York and at Spain's three-Michellin-starred Quique Dacosta Restaurante. When he returned to Australia, he enjoyed a stint with The Bentley Restaurant Group and launched pop-up series Ételek.

How his influence will be felt across the menus at Anyday's venues hasn't yet been revealed, but whatever new dishes eventuate are sure to be among Brisbane's must-try bites.
