Scott Conant credits his success to his wife and family; divorce rumors are a bad recipe.

Chef de cuisine, restaurateur, and author Scott began his professional career as an intern at San Domenico, a well-known New York City restaurant.
After that, he spent a year at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, Germany, mastering the craft of pastry. He went back to San Domenico and got a job as a sous chef.
In 1995, he began his restaurant career as a cook at Manhattan’s Il Toscanaccio restaurant. He later became the executive chef of New York City’s City Eatery.
His enthusiasm for Italian cuisine grabbed the attention of New Yorkers, and in 2000, he received a two-star rating from The New York Times. After two years, Scott founded L’Impero, his own restaurant in Tudor City.
In 2008, the renowned chef made a professional breakthrough when he established Scarpetta, an Italian restaurant in Manhattan, New York. In July 2010, he debuted his television show 24 Hour Restaurant Battle.
Aside from that, he has appeared on shows and competitions such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, and Cooks Vs. Cons, and others.
From 2010 to 2018, he opened a number of restaurants in various places, including D.O.C.G Enoteca (2010), Impero Steak (2014), and the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, which he unveiled in 2018.
Friend Aaron Sanchez Reunited; Four-Course Dinner
Scott Conant brought his old friend Aaron Sanchez, who competes in Masterchef, into the kitchen of his restaurant, Masso Osteria, to work on a special four-course evening in November 2018, following the launch of his restaurant Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa.
Scott mentioned his wish to spend time with him and cook with him when they were reunited. Sanchez made it clear that he was looking forward to entering Scott’s kitchen.
And, as expected, the two ended up having a lovely night together on November 13th thanks to their exaggerated cooking talents.
Conant started the evening with a signature cocktail and a variety of canapes, followed by Sanchez, who served the first and third dishes. The second course and dessert were handled by Conant.
Conant’s meals, as one might imagine, showcased his Italian heritage, with Sanchez adding a lot of Mexican spices to the mix.
