LON’s at the Hermosa

The culinary team at LON’s at the Hermosa prides itself on a number of things, among them being culinary creativity and supporting organic produce. Apart from the traditional lunch and dinner menus, a new chef’s tasting menu is offered weekly to showcase these talents, and newly-promoted executive chef James Ducas demonstrates his knowledge of European cooking techniques to every guest. Possibly the best part of LON’S at the Hermosa is the one-acre organic garden the chefs use to cook from; finding inspiration for dishes such as root vegetable bisque, or the foie gras dumpling with garden basil, from what’s ripest this time of year. hermosainn.com.
