Scottsdale’s luxurious Royal Palms Resort and Spa has announced Todd Sicolo as the new Executive Chef. With nearly 25 years of culinary experience, Chef Sicolo is a veteran of luxury hotels and the culinary journey, graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hype Park, New York.

“We are very excited to welcome Chef Sicolo to the Royal Palms team” said Steve Benson, General Manager of Royal Palms Resort and Spa. “It did not take long to realize that his culinary style, technique and passion are the perfect fit for the direction we are headed for T. Cook’s and the entire property.”

As Executive Chef, Chef Sicolo will oversee all culinary operations at the Royal Palms. These responsibilities include the resort’s famous T. Cook’s restaurant and of course T. Cook’s Lounge. T.

Cook’s embodies while attracting the modern diner.
