One of the best restaurants in Scottsdale is located right here at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. Our recently renovated restaurant, Kitchen West, offers a variety of American western fare, along with an ambiance that is both lively and relaxing. And at the heart of the delicious Kitchen West menu is the incredible talent of our Executive Chef, Rick Dupere.
Chef Rick brings a well-seasoned, unique approach to Kitchen West. His delectable dishes are influenced by the flavors of the Western United States. In fact, the regional fare on his menus inspired us to give Kitchen West its appropriate name. In Chef Rick’s kitchen, he employs imaginative culinary techniques and locally sourced ingredients to create palate-pleasing cuisine that is distinctly Arizona.
Prior to joining The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, Chef Rick was the executive chef at The Ritz-Carlton Phoenix, overseeing all hotel culinary operations. His additional roles have included positions at the Phoenix Convention Center and the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, where he was the opening senior banquet chef. Needless to say, Chef Rick comes to The Scottsdale Resort with some of the best culinary experience in the area and truly has made Kitchen West one of the best restaurants in Scottsdale.
In addition to wowing guests at Kitchen West, Chef Rick also leads the culinary operations throughout the entire resort and oversees the operation of Bar Six40. As a great place to chill, meet friends, or catch up on emails, Bar Six40 offers local coffee, freshly squeezed juices and light breakfast options in the morning and afternoon. Later in the day, the bar transitions to the perfect locale to enjoy cocktails, wines and craft beers on tap, as well as sumptuous small plates to complement your choice of refreshment.
Whether you’re a guest at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch or you’re looking to experience one of the best restaurants in Scottsdale, Kitchen West is a must-stop. We invite you to join us soon for lunch, brunch, dinner, or just for dessert and drinks. You will be impressed with the many flavors that Chef Rick has to offer and the dining experience that will certainly be one worth repeating.
