Alejandro (Alex) Pinero has just been named chef de cuisine at Fratelli Lyon, the great regional Italian bistro that opened last May in Miami's Design DIstrict. Pinero, 35, is a Miami native who graduated Johnson & Wales University with honors. Between 1996 and 2004 he worked his way through the kitchens of Baleen, The Strand, The Gaucho Room at the Loews Hotel, the RItz-Carlton Coconut Grove, and Talula. He had been the sous chef at Casa Tua for four years prior to his appointment at Fratelli Lyon. Sounds like he's ready.
