Rocco Dispirito

Looks like Rocco's career as a chef is coming to a rapid end. Latest word is he's leaving his restaurant Union Pacific which will close by the end of the year. He's already been locked out of his infamous restaurant, Rocco's.

Report is he will pursue other endeavours away from restaurant kitchens. Could his line of cheap cookware be making him that much money?

I hate to speak ill about others, but Rocco's ego sure got in the way of a lot of things. Who knew he'd get such a big head with all the fame.

Greetings, Audeo. Rocco was/is the star of a reality-type show on (I think?) FN called "Restaurant" about the excellent adventures involved in opening a new one in NYC. Probably already has a book out there somewhere too. I had nver heard of him either until I came across this show on TV. Watched a few episodes until I got bored.
