Rocco DiSpirito (born November 19, 1966) is an American chef based in New York City.
DiSpirito was born in Queens, New York City, New York. He graduated in 1986 from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and in 1990 from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in business. DiSpirito is known for his Italian-American cuisine and his innovative fusion cooking.
DiSpirito is best known as a celebrity chef and a cookbook author. He is known for his involvement in Union Pacific, a restaurant he opened in 1997 in the Gramercy Park section of Manhattan. A year later, New York Times reviewer Ruth Reichl, in an ecstatic three-star review, reported that a woman at the next table was moaning in uncontrollable ecstasy as she ate, but it was impossible to determine what dish had provoked that reaction, since just about every entree was worthy of such moans. He left Union Pacific in 2004.
In 2003 and 2004, DiSpirito was the subject of the NBC reality television show The Restaurant, which followed DiSpirito and his mother during the opening of their restaurant, Rocco's 22nd Street, and his subsequent lack of cooperation with his investor, Jeffrey Chodorow. An episode showed Rocco and Chodorow taking a meeting at a table in the restaurant. Rocco complained about Chodorow's changes to the restaurant; Chodorow responded with his own complaint that Rocco never responded to emails. Rocco walked away from the table with no explanation, despite the fact that the meeting was not yet adjourned. Chodorow gave Rocco's chef a raise, and that same afternoon, Rocco fired the chef. Rocco claimed to be a part-owner, and Chodorow said Rocco was not an owner. The television viewer never did see whether or not Rocco produced a partnership agreement to support his claim.
DiSpirito succeeded Arthur Schwartz as host of Food Talk, an hour-long morning talk show on New York Radio WOR (AM), from October 2004 through December 2005, and then hosted 12 episodes of a TV show
