San Antonio native Jesse Perez is on the move again. The former chef at Francesca’s at Sunset and the restaurant that became Luce left his hometown a few years back to go to Atlanta. Now, he’s headed to Los Angeles.
He will soon become the executive chef of the Hotel Maya and Fuego Restaurant in Long Beach.
The job change comes in the wake of Perez being named Best Latino Chef in the U.S. by the Flavors of Passion awards.
Congratulations, Jesse. We look forward to the day you work your way back to San Antonio.
