About the Chef Born in California and raised in Chicago, Chef Rusconi earned his culinary degree from the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont. Chef Rusconi has long been a leader in sustainable food before it was trendy to do so Rusconi's culinary track record includes a handful of Mobil 4 Star Awards, and consecutive nominations from the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame. He's known for revitalizing the cuisine at LON's at the Hermosa Inn, and supporting many local and national charity events, but in his own kitchen, Rusconi's creativity is boundless. From the carefully curated menu to the stunning skylight/community art installation at the heart of the restaurant, this modern day renaissance man has influenced and designed nearly every element and detail you'll experience at Rusconi's American Kitchen. As for his food philosophy, Chef Rusconi says simply, "Buy the best ingredients and treat them with love and respect then apply proper technique. Only by doing that will you be able to deliver the best quality possible."
