Our Executive Chef & General Manager


SteveChef Steve Sicinski began his career during college while working for a high-volume caterer. Having found his talents went much further than a simple paycheck, he wanted more refinement in his culinary skills, so he applied to, and was accepted at, Le Cordon Bleu. Upon graduation from Le Cordon Bleu, Chef became an intern at Enchantment Resort and Mii Amo Spa in Sedona, AZ, a two-time #1 winner of Travel and Leisure Magazine’s list of world-class spa resorts. There he went from intern to salaried Chef his first year, and to Executive Chef his second year. Chef spent a total of ten years at Mii Amo, where he also co-authored the spa’s signature cookbook, A Journey of Taste, which is still featured today.

Chef Sicinski then moved back east to become the Executive Chef at Stowe, VT landmark Topnotch Resort. Chef had a very successful 3 years at Topnotch, opening a second resort restaurant during his second year as Executive Chef.

With his vast experience and versatile skills, Chef Sicinski is able to create cuisine well beyond French cuisine, and his innate understanding of the different facets of the industry make him the perfect selection to be the General Manager of Crop Bistro & Brewery, and Executive Chef of the newly-acquired Rusty Nail.
