I wanted to take this opportunity to thank every guest and team member along the way for being an important and special part of Forte by Chef Adrianne, a Maximum Flavor concept. It has been a privilege and an honor to be afforded the opportunity of delivering wonderful experiences and memories to our guests.

Forte was honored to be called “The Sprawling Splendor on Miracle Mile,” and the New York Post called it the Best New Italian Restaurant. We were blessed to have created numerous jobs and a positive difference in our community.

This was truly a labor of love and marked many new milestones, including our first foray into owning and operating a restaurant alongside business partners.

As we cross the one-year finish line, we reflect on our successes and take what we’ve learned with it. The proverbial “all good things [must] come to an end” is the most fitting, and on Saturday, July 2nd, 2022, Chef Adrianne will be stepping away from the partnership with Barreto Hospitality.

To our guests and everyone who helped bring this effort to life, we did it Maximum Flavor-style, and we had fun!
