Go get seconds of Pierino Jermonti's luscious caramel cheesecake creme brulee while you still can. T. Cook's executive pastry chef, who's been at the restaurant since 1996, is on his way out. Today marks his last day on the property.
According to the Republic, Jermonti's headed to Terranea, a Southern California sister property to The Royal Palms. The resort's marketing and communications manager, Erin Stremcha, tells me that Terranea, located about 45 minutes south of L.A., in Palos Verdes, is set to open June 1.
"It's bittersweet for us," she says, "but we're very excited for him, and he was looking forward to a new challenge."
