Passing on the Ilustrado Tradition
Now celebrating its 24th year, owners Boni and the late Rose Pimentel have built a large following of wedding and corporate clients. “It’s been a tremendous honor to have the support and loyalty of our patrons and clients over the past 24 years,” said Boni Pimentel co-founder and owner of Ilustrado Restaurant. Bea Pimentel, 2nd generation owner and presently Ilustrado’s General Manager also shares, “Our tenure is a true testament of our hard work and dedication to fine-dining excellence and to be of service not just to our customers but to our long-standing staff who have contributed to the success of Ilustrado all these years.” Now that the baton is passed on to the younger Pimentels, Bea and sister, Chef Bernice Pimentel — a graduate of ISCHAMM, are now both on top of running the day-to-day operations of the business.
