Meet Chef ADAM

Adam Terhune is the Chef de Cuisine for Commons Club, the brand’s flagship restaurant concept, at Virgin Hotels Nashville. Born and raised in Kentucky, Terhune was first introduced to the culinary world by spending time with his grandmother in the kitchen and learning from her as they churned out classic Southern dishes like biscuits and gravy, oven roasted chicken, and other cherished family recipes. After spending the majority of his childhood in Kentucky, Terhune moved to St. Joseph, MI where he continued to hone his culinary talents and foster his passion for hospitality.

In June 2009, Terhune made the decision to move to Nashville, TN and jumped head first into the fast-growing food scene. Throughout his time in Music City, Terhune has worked under acclaimed chefs such as Julia Sulivan, Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Henrietta Red, and Julia Jaksic, Executive Chef and Owner of Cafe Roze and Roze Pony. In addition to these iconic establishments, Terhune also worked and trained at True Food Kitchen, a restaurant chain focused on the anti-inflammatory food pyramid by Andrew Weil. These experiences coupled with his love for fresh, home cooked meals, laid the foundation for Terhune’s culinary ethos of locally sourced ingredients, an evolving menu based on seasonality, and a variety of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free offerings.
