Delmonico Steakhouse New Lead Mixologist Reinvigorates Whiskey Library and Cocktail Program
Juyoung Kang, new lead mixologist for Chef Emeril Lagasse's Delmonico Steakhouse, began her career with Emeril's restaurants in May 2015. A Philadelphia native, Kang started out bartending in her hometown and shortly made her way to Las Vegas in 2010 and tended bar in many well- known restaurants and bars around the city.

As lead mixologist, Kang creates seasonal, specialty and classic cocktails for the restaurant and lounge, as well as curates Delmonico's renowned bar program with one of the largest whisky selections in the U.S. that includes more than 700 varieties from eight different countries.
