Lon's at the Hermosa Names New Executive Chef

Along with a $2 million remodel of the Hermosa Inn, Lon's at the Hermosa has new kitchen leadership as well.

The AAA Four Diamond restaurant has just named its new executive chef, Jeremy Pacheco, who comes on board after a two-month search; the previous exec chef at Lon's was Michael Rusconi.

Pacheco spent the previous five years working for Wynn Las Vegas. His most recent position was chef de cuisine at Society Cafe Encore, named a Best New Restaurant of 2009 by Esquire.

Pacheco has a history in the Valley culinary scene. Before moving to Las Vegas, he spent seven years at the former Terrace Dining Room at the Phoenician. He's also a graduate of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute.
