Philip Cocco

Farmhouse Evanston General Manager

New to the Chicago market, but hardly new to the restaurant and hospitality world, Phil Cocco comes to Farmhouse Evanston most recently from New England where he spent the last 15 years managing, consulting and owning various restaurants and hospitality venues.  With more than 30 years in the business and career stops in San Francisco, Vermont, Cape Cod, New Orleans, Boston and Maine, Phil has worked in almost every type of restaurant, hotel, night club and resort. No stranger to the kitchen, Phil has a huge passion for local food and the “Honest to the Heartland” Farmhouse motto is how he lives his life.  “ When I found a restaurant like Farmhouse Evanston that shared the same values and beliefs that I have, I knew I found my home”. Phil now resides in Evanston with his wife Liz and her two boys.  He hopes to bring the Evanston community closer in touch with Farmhouse for years to come.
