Meet Chef Robert Roaquin
A native New Yorker who spent his early years in the Bronx, Chef Robert Roaquin’s deep passion and talent in culinary arts has been apparent from a young age. Following graduation at the top of his class, Roaquin externed for the legendary Four Seasons restaurant under master chef Seppi Renggli before assuming his role as a line cook at Arthur’s Landing in Weehawken, New Jersey, where he successfully rose through the ranks to become sous chef. Craving an even deeper education in culinary arts, Chef Robert relocated from the East Coast to California to work for world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck at Chinois on Main in Santa Monica and former fine-dining establishment Granita in Malibu. His several years of training came to fruition when he assumed the role of executive chef at filmmaker Tony Bill and actor Dudley Moore’s ever-popular restaurant, 72 Market Street, in Venice. Chef Robert was then recruited back to New York to assume a role as executive chef at the high-end Nick and Stef’s Steakhouse at Madison Square Garden. This role led to experience working at major sporting events such as the U.S. Open Tennis, PGA Tournament, and NASCAR, during which Chef Robert grew incredibly fond of golf. He then accepted a position as executive chef for Empire Golf Management which involved work with various private golf courses throughout the region. Today, we are thrilled to announce that Robert has returned to his hometown of the Bronx to serve as the new Executive Chef of The Waterfront NYC, where he will bring his vast knowledge of various cuisines and flavors to be experienced by all who visit our spectacular dining destination.
