Chef Robert Sckalor

Robert Sckalor, Executive Chef, has been cooking for the last 37 years in such establishments as the Waldorf Astoria, Agata & Valentina, and the Four Seasons. Robert also spent several years cooking for a major hotel chain in the Caribbean and that broadened his repertoire to include some island accents in his preparations. He cooks what many consider the best prepared cuisine from a specialty food shop in New York City. The New York Times praised his incredible crab cakes and DOWNTOWN Magazine's staff enjoyed the first batch of Chef's homemade turkey chili and according to the magazine, "One bite and you are hooked!"

Chef Rob also teaches a weekly cooking class at PS-IS 276 across the street from Battery Place Market. Robert joins the class weekly to cook everything from Mousse au Chocolat to roasted butternut squash with Granny Smith apples to arancini (Italian rice balls.) He just loves watching the kids help make these dishes and seeing them and the teachers eating everything!

From early morning breakfast sandwiches and frittatas using only the finest artisanal products, to a lunch that includes hot dishes or sandwiches on Sullivan Street or Orwasher's breads, to picking up a dinner that has local or organic chicken, beef, fish, pork or vegetarian dishes that will warm the soul, Chef Robert creates it all.
