CHEF DAVID FISHER
Chef David Fisher began his culinary career the moment he first served a beautifully executed grilled cheese at his parents' family restaurant. After attending Johnson and Wales, he competed in ACF Competitions and medaled - twice. From barbecue in Oklahoma to Michelin in New York City, David amassed an impressive repertoire of cooking techniques. He met his wife Serena while cooking at Pearl & Ash, before they went on to create a 12-course pop-up at BoxKite in the East Village.
In June 2017, David moved to California to pursue his interest in the legendary California produce and held the roles of Chef de Cuisine at both Bird Dog in Palo Alto and Sorrel in Pacific Heights. In 2020, in the face of the Covid pandemic, David and Serena opened Marlena in Bernal Heights, which received one Michelin Star the following year (and retained it through their tenure). In 2022, David was inducted into StarChef's Class of Rising Star Chefs.
On his days off, you can find David at the park playing fetch with their dog, or on the ice playing hockey.
CHEF SERENA CHOW FISHER
Chef Serena Chow Fisher's love of pastry stems from sharing mint chocolate chip ice cream with her childhood best friend and making funfetti cakes for her stuffed animals. Her first kitchen job was at a West Village cupcake, wine and beer bar, until she graduated from New York University. She decided to pursue her love of pastry at the French Culinary Institute before landing the prestigious gig working under Angela Pinkerton at Eleven Madison Park.
Since then, she's been the Pastry Chef at Pearl & Ash (where she met her husband, David), and Kat & Theo, before moving to California to be closer to her family. She held the roles of Pastry Chef at Bird Dog and Bakery Manager at Backhaus, before opening Marlena with David. In 2021, Esquire Magazine featured Serena as the Best Pastry Chef in America, before she was inducted into StarChef's 2022 Class of Rising Star Chefs.
In 2023, Serena fulfilled her lifelong dream of ice cream by opening Jack & Remi (named after their 2 pups), which is available for pick-up throughout San Francisco. On her days off, she can be found reading a book in bed or powerlifting in the gym.
Daniel Urrutia was born and raised in the food centric city of Mexico City. Some of his fondest memories are of cooking with his father over the grill, the charcoal and smoke creating visceral memories to remember for years to come. In 1998, Daniel moved to the United States to pursue his career and love of the restaurant world. His very first restaurant job was being a dishwasher at The Macaroni Grill.
As Daniel's appetite for learning and experience grew, so his passion for providing wonderful and unique dining experiences. He's had the privilege of working and being mentored in some of San Francisco's most beloved and highly-awarded restaurants, such as Atelier Crenn, Saison, and Chef's Table Brooklyn Fare. Daniel has done it all - Captain, General Manager, Maitre'd, and Sommelier - and he joins 7 Adams with the hope to create a welcoming atmosphere that feels like a warm family meal, executed with meticulous details and calibrated excellence.
On his days off, Daniel's favorite activity is spending time watching his son grow up and playing soccer in the sun.
