Chef Rob’s Cookbook

Celebrity Chef Rob Gayle Set to Release Summer Cookbook

Robert Gayle, the Executive Chef and Owner at Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe & Upscale Lounge, 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, New York. 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’ New York and Atlanta venture, Justin’s Restaurant, in 1997. The momentum has since continued with his own ventures, and celebrities including Usher, Shaquille O’Neal, Wale, T-Pain, Sheree Whitfield, Bobby Valentino & more have been spotted visiting his venue. In addition to a new Caribbean Food Truck, he is also poised for a late summer release of a cookbook featuring his favorite recipes. Stay tuned to or @chefrobscafe on
