Jimmy LeBrón is the Head Chef at 27 Restaurant in Miami. A Miami native, he began his career in cooking at home, practicing technique and recipe testing in his home kitchen. After attending FIU’s business school, LeBrón accepted a position as a prep cook at the health-forward Canyon Ranch, where he developed a thorough understanding of fresh ingredients and nutrition. He rose to become the Chef de Partis, and picked up a shift as a busser at the Broken Shaker to familiarize himself with the Front Of House. After ascending the ranks at the Shaker, LeBron went out to become a Sous Chef at the Freehand’s first full service restaurant, 27 Restaurant & Bar. With a focus on a welcoming communal atmosphere and the creative spirit of a modern-day salon, 27 utilizes the freshest local ingredients and highest-quality produce available, including fresh fish, shellfish, choice meats, and local produce - much of it grown in the property’s onsite garden. Responsible for crafting the original menu, as Head Chef he continues to develop dishes that explore the flavor profile of Miami cuisine while incorporating Puerto Rican, Peruvian, and Israeli influences. Jimmy Lebron continues to garner high accolades for 27 Restaurant, including The Miami Times’ “Best Of Miami” award, and hopes to one day open his own restaurant.
