Authentic Caribbean cuisine with a gourmet twist. Celebrating Jamaican favorites as a whole, Chef Rob brings a unique, upscale casual dining restaurant and lounge to the city. Located just outside of the perimeter, in the affluent Sandy Springs area, Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe and Upscale Lounge are a must for those looking for a cultural atmosphere without sacrificing taste and a proper dining experience.
Robert Gayle, the Executive Chef and owner at Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe, combines his Caribbean background with a Culinary Institute of America education, gathering flavors from around the world to refine a menu of island comfort fare. After spending his childhood in Jamaica West Indies, Chef Rob relocated to the United States and began to develop his culinary love at age 13 by working as a steward in Brooklyn. Shortly after obtaining his culinary degree in 1993, his skills and prestige steadily increased over time, allowing him to eventually assist with the openings of Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs’ Justin’s Restaurant in New York in 1997, followed by the location in Atlanta in 1999. There he was able to deliver his culinary expertise for the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Akon, to name a few.
Chef Rob’s mental rolodex includes recipes for top selling entrees such as braised beef oxtails, ackee and salt fish, jerk chicken, curried goat, dry-rubbed spare ribs, and his signature spicy jerk seasoning. In addition to opening his own Atlanta-based restaurant in 2006 and the new Upscale lounge in 2013, the Chef Rob brand continues to grow with its wide selection of signature sauces, intimate cooking classes, and event catering options.
