New Chef At Fratelli Lyon


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.
