Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge, a Coronado eatery specializing in eclectic, seasonal cuisine, announces the hiring of Executive Chef JC Colón who will take over the position previously occupied by Gregory Chavez. Leroy’s has carefully selected the accomplished chef to design and execute a new menu that will be a culmination of years of experience, classical training and understanding of San Diego’s burgeoning palate. Having honed his craft at CUCINA urbana and Kensington Grill, Colón is primed and ready to lead the kitchen as executive chef. Guests can expect seasonal updates to local favorites and new items that demonstrate Colón’s finesse.
“We are pleased to have JC Colón join Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge,” said David Spatafore, owner of Blue Bridge Hospitality. “JC’s hands-on approach, passion and eclectic background match what we do here. He gets Leroy’s; he is Leroy’s.”
Colón will start with a new dinner menu and then move into brunch, the vibrant scene favored by locals for its unrivaled Bloody Marys and live music.
Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge is located at 1015 Orange Ave.
