Paolo Dorigato hails from a prominent culinary background. His cooking style pairs cultural influence from his hometown of Trento, Italy, with 23 years of experience spent in kitchens across Porto Cervo, Florence and Siena, Italy, as well as notable culinary destinations including London, New York, Miami and Las Vegas.
Before joining LDV Hospitality, Dorigato served as executive chef of the highly acclaimed The Rainbow Room from 2004 through 2009, followed by the legendary Cipriani Wall Street, where he served as executive chef from 2009 to 2012. Dorigato has also served at the helm of various Michelin-starred restaurants, including Barbaluc (New York), Daphne’s (London) and 116 The Restaurant (London), as well as the legendary Le Cirque (New York).
In January 2012, Dorigato joined LDV Hospitality as the executive chef of Azure at Revel Resorts in Atlantic City, where his authentic Italian influence contributed to Azure being named as one of New Jersey Monthly’s “2012 Best Restaurants.” From there, he brought his ambitious, yet intimate cooking style to LDV’s newest concept, Dolce Italian (Miami, Chicago, Atlanta), which opened in January 2013 and won Bravo’s “Best New Restaurant,” in addition to receiving rave reviews for its rustic Italian cuisine.
