Gardnerville native to manage Adele’s in Carson

Staff Reports

Gardnerville native Anthony Kingsland is now manning the front of the house at Carson City’s Adele’s Restaurant & Lounge.

Kingsland has spent the last 20 years honing his skills at some of the region’s most respected dining establishments including Reno’s Rapscallion, The Stonehouse Cafe and Charlie Palmer Steak. He also owned a wine shop in Sparks.

As floor manager, Kingsland oversees daily restaurant operations and staffing, as well as Adele’s wine program and special events.

“I’m excited to be here at Adele’s,” Kingsland said. “I was born in Gardnerville so I feel a real connection to not only Carson City, but to Adele’s in particular.”

Kingsland looks forward to putting his own “thumbprint” on the iconic restaurant’s wine list.

“I’d like to incorporate more value wines from around the world; great wines at great prices,” he explained.

Riffing off his deep wine industry knowledge, Kingsland hopes to spearhead some educational wine and food pairing events at Adele’s.

Onboard for less than three months, Kingsland has already made a big impression with his boss Charlie Abowd, Adele’s owner and chef.

“My favorite quality of Anthony’s is his ability to connect with our staff; giving them positive comments and training,” Abowd added. “He is a local boy so he knows the lifestyle of the customer base here. Anthony also knows many of our fans and friends and he is just a dream to work with.”

Adele’s is located at 1112 North Carson Street in a historic, mansard-roofed house built in 1864. Adele’s serves lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Dinner is served Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The lounge menu is served until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
