Chef Scott Phillips

With 20 years of Culinary experience, Chef Scott Phillips’ career has run the gamut from shaping aspiring students teaching Culinary School to leading restaurants, hotels, and country clubs. Chef Scott’s love for food started at home, watching his grandmother create delicious craft meals for the family in the mountains of Southwest Virginia; From there, his palate developed through extensive international travel.

After an apprenticeship in Maryland, Scott relocated to Northeast Tennessee, training with some of the region’s top chefs. It was there he began to develop his cooking philosophy and style, which he playfully refers to as “rustic haute”. The foundation of Scott’s cooking is scratch made recipes and artful plating without using tweezers and fussy plating.

After spending several years helping shape the Culinary scene in the mountains of Tennessee, Chef Scott decided it was time to further his career by moving to North Carolina. In 2011, he brought his brand of cooking to the blossoming food culture of Wake County, leading some of the top kitchens in Raleigh.

Now Chef Scott brings his talents to Vecino, taking the exceptional standard of food quality established by Chef Leah to new levels with his bright, flavorful and imaginative dishes. You will not be disappointed!
