Chef Alessandro “Alex” Stratta comes from a long lineage of restaurateurs and hoteliers dating back to the 1800’s. After graduating from the California Culinary Academy, Stratta landed an internship with the iconic French chef Alain Ducasse in Monaco, before moving to NYC to work for another famed French chef, Daniel Boulud. Lured to Scottsdale, AZ to serve as the Executive Chef of The Phoenician Resort’s fine dining room, Mary Elaine’s, Stratta was recognized as one of “America’s Ten Best New Chefs” by Food & Wine Magazine, and won the James Beard Foundation’s 1998 “Best Chef: Southwest” Award. Intrigued by fine dining scene emerging in Las Vegas, Stratta left to found Renoir at The Mirage, before moving on to open the eponymous, Alex at the Wynn Las Vegas, which earned a coveted Michelin 2-Star recognition, as well as multiple Forbes/Mobil 5 Star and AAA Five Diamond awards.
Most recently, Stratta moved back to Scottsdale to open his own standalone restaurant inspired by the flavors of the Mediterranean and featuring a sunny and vibrant menu of natural, seasonal and whole foods, paired with a casual counter-service setup that fits today’s modern lifestyle.
