Jon Adgemis acquires Sydney’s A-list Greek restaurant Alpha


Public Hospitality Group’s Jon Adgemis has added Sydney-based Greek restaurant, Alpha, to his burgeoning business portfolio, trumping competitors.

The Greek-Australian hospitality baron was recently in the limelight for his partnership split with the Love Tilly Group that led to a complex legal battle, where both parties made allegations of financial irregularities.

Despite recent hiccups for Adgemis, The Hellenic Club notified suppliers that “we have agreed terms with Alpha Brand Holdings Pty Limited (part of the Public Group) to take over the operation of Alpha and Beta”.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the new management deal would ensure the venue’s “cherished” culinary heritage is preserved, which involves keeping Chef, Peter Conistis onboard.

Conistis, who has been linked to a proposed Greek mega-restaurant in Brighton Le Sands is yet to comment, however, he has previously worked with outside locations, such as Ploos restaurant on Circular Quay, while remaining involved with Alpha.
