Chef Robert Grant is a Colorado native recently returned home after an enriching and valuable 10 years working in some of our country's most celebrated kitchens. A 2005 graduate of Johnson and Wales Denver, Robert externed in the kitchen of Chef Thomas Keller at Keller’s world renowned, Bouchon Las Vegas. His three-month externship turned to three dynamic years as the notable restaurant’s Chef de Partie. His time there was followed by a three-month immersion in the prolific lifestyles, recipes, and traditions of old-world France and Spain, after which Robert accepted a position with Boston Chef, Barbara Lynch. He joined Lynch’s, The Butcher Shop, as Executive Sous Chef of the bustling neighborhood wine bar, bistro + butcher and quickly became the establishment’s Chef de Cuisine. Summer 2011 brought with it another opportunity to head back to Europe for inspiration and growth; this time to the north of Italy and the south of France. In the fall of 2011 he was offered the Executive Chef position at one of Boston’s oldest restaurants, The Blue Room, where he was honored to be recognized as one of Boston’s top “30 under 30” by Zagat. In late 2013 he helped to open their sister space, Belly Wine Bar, a charcuterie and cheese driven eatery. When he’s not in the kitchen, Robert enjoys spending time with his wife + young son and he can also be found mountain biking, camping or fishing, depending on the season.
