Robert Rottensteiner Jr.
Rob Jr started working in the restaurant business when he was just a child. Even before he could see over the stove he was helping his father prepare the vegetables and mashed potatoes. At the age of six-teen he decided he was going to take over the family business and started focusing on how he could entertain and please peoples palates. On any given night you can find him cooking besides his father, serving tables, or keeping track of the finances.
