Chef/Owner, The Company Burger

New Orleans native Adam Biderman essentially grew up in the kitchen. Both of his parents were deeply passionate–and adept– at cooking and most of Biderman’s early memories were steeped in Southern entertaining traditions, convening at the family table and connecting over shared culinary experiences.

Before he was legal, Biderman’s been in the back of the house. He made the arduous trek from dishwasher at Michael’s Mid-City Grill up the ranks of the line. After graduating high school, Biderman left New Orleans to attend the University of Georgia before quickly realizing his real calling was not in the classroom, but in the kitchen. He made the move from Athens to Atlanta where worked at some of the city’s well regarded establishments from Restaurant Eugene, to Holeman and Finch Public House, and Star Provisions.

Biderman spent six years in Atlanta learning from talent before he felt the undeniable urge to return home to New Orleans. His return home was sparked by a fortuitous meeting with local restaurateur and entrepreneur, Neal Bodenheimer, at his craft cocktail bar, Cure. Bodenhemier was at the forefront of Freret Street revitalization and Biderman, inspired by the energy of the street and movement on the horizon, decided to set up shop in New Orleans and open his first restaurant concept on Freret.

His dream was realized in 2011 with the opening of The Company Burger, a restaurant that celebrates a staple of culinary Americana without skimping on the quality of ingredients and a chef driven approach. The restaurant has received national acclaim, including a nod as “Best Burger in America,” from Food & Wine, being named “The Most Perfect of All Sandwiches” from Esquire and among the “Top 10 Burgers in America” from CNN. Biderman himself has also attracted acclaim as a Star Chefs “Rising Star” and “Chef to Watch” from The Times-Picayune.

Biderman resides in New Orleans’ Central City with his wife Willow, pitbull Lucy, and cat Fernet. Outside of the kitchen, Biderman enjoys exploring the outdoors with his wife and dog, traveling as much as possible and taking his truck anywhere he can run it offroad.
