Hero Profile » About Evan Percoco
As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, the country's premier culinary learning laboratory, Evan Percoco has forged a career based on a bold, creative approach to American cuisine and the great range the best in his craft require. He has dazzled the palates of presidents, royalty and rock stars, each receiving the type of personal attention that has become his trademark. It is this element that led to his selection as Resident Chef of Saudi Arabian Prince Khalid Al-Faisal at the consul's estate in Washington DC, and Executive Chef at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, catering to Rock & Roll royalty. It was during his run at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC, where he met Lou Carrier. The two formed a creative partnership that led to some of the most successful food and beverage concepts at the Mayflower, Loews Hotels, Hard Rock Hotels and BOKX109 American Prime. These days Evan can be found heading up the kitchen at The Wit Hotel in Chicago.
