what we do

addo means inspire in Latin.  It's where all the ideas from our restaurant group start, get developed, and are showcased to the public through many formats.  Dinners, brunch, pop-ups, incubators that help up-and-coming chefs get moving in the right direction, and so much more.  addo is a place for ideas that become reality.  We are a restaurant that focuses on tasting menus do please join us for one or all.

We have two versions of addo currently:
