About

BRAD FARMERIE

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Brad Farmerie took a year hiatus from college to move to London and witness firsthand the culinary revolution taking place in the UK. He embarked on a quest for culture and global cuisine, which led to a Grande Diplome from Le Cordon Bleu and seven years of worldwide travel. Kitchen experience in one, two, and three Michelin star restaurants developed his technique, but it was the renowned chef Peter Gordon’s free-spirited fusion that resonated with Farmerie at The Sugar Club in 1996, and later in 2002 when he helped Gordon and fellow NZ chef Anna Hansen open The Providores. Farmerie returned to the States to open the ever eclectic PUBLIC with AvroKO Hospitality Group in 2003, garnering 2 James Beard awards and a Michelin Star. Farmerie and AvroKO followed this success with Asian gin den, Madam Geneva (2008), the meat-centric Saxon + Parole (2011), neighborhood cocktail bar The Daily (2012), and their first venture outside of NYC with NINEBARK (Napa, California) later that same year. Most recently, Brad and AHG have expanded the Saxon + Parole brand with an outpost in Moscow, Russia (2013), and have created the inflight menu for JetBlue’s recently launched Mint experience (2014). Farmerie has been named a “Rising Star” by Star Chefs (2005), an “Emerging Tastemaker” by Food Arts magazine (2007), “winner” on TV show Iron Chef America (2009), “Prince of Porc” from whole hog connoisseurs Cochon 555 (2011), and “dad” by his children Bruno and Scarlet (ongoing).

AVROKO

OWNERS

Four partners, 14 years, multiple disciplines rooted in hospitality.

New York-headquartered design-and-concept firm AvroKO, is equally adept at the varied disciplines of architecture, furniture, graphics, and even fashion. Founded by 4 original partners - William Harris, Kristina O’Neal, Adam Farmerie and Greg Bradshaw (from left) - each contributes a unique vision to the company’s multifaceted design mission. AvroKO has established a new paradigm in the hospitality industry, encompassing a multitude of disciplines and creating thoughtful, provocative architecture, brands, products, and environments.

AvroKO’s spirit of adventure and entrepreneurial curiosity has also inspired the Principals to pursue their own “self-propelled” projects, such as residential development, furniture lines, and several restaurants and bars which are wholly conceived, designed, owned, and operated by the company. These include PUBLIC, The Daily, Saxon + Parole, Madam Geneva, GENUINE Roadside, GENUINE Superette and GENUINE Liquorette in NYC; and Saxon + Parole, Moscow.

DAN RAFALIN

MANAGING PARTNER

Dan Rafalin has been immersed in the culinary world from the beginning of his career when he received a Grand Diplôme in culinary arts from the French Culinary Institute. He holds a master of arts degree in food management from New York University and worked as the financial and business analyst for the Clark Wolf company, a New York-based food, restaurant and hospitality consulting firm before joining forces with AvroKO to form AvroKO Hospitality Group.
