Chef Joe Scigliano has many great memories of enjoying authentic Italian cooking from his Grandmother and father, fostering his love for all things culinary. The competitive atmosphere and the culinary industry have been a substantial part of Scigliano’s life, proving to be the driving force behind his ambitious spirit.
Though the first part of Joe’s career was in sales and management, he eventually let his passion for the culinary arts lead him to pursue it as a career. Joe attended Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts in Pittsburgh in 2002. Then he spent an impressive nine years with The Ritz-Carlton, most recently as the Executive Sous Chef at The Ritz Dallas. During his tenure at the hotel, his contributions to the food and beverage department were integral to the hotel’s Zagat rating as best hotel in the world in 2009 and being named an AAA Five Diamond property. Joe was also a major player in the offsite catering business and spear headed the AT&T Performing Arts center opening Gala in October 2009.
Joe will serve alongside Savor’s Chef John Coleman as Chef Partner, contributing his ideas and influence to the menu, as well as curating the keg wall in the restaurant, which will feature craft brews and American wines.
Joe lives with his wife Jill Scigliano in Dallas. He enjoys all sports and can usually be found watching his favorite teams, the Washington Redskins or Chelsea Football Club, with a craft beer.
