Chef Biography

Like many chefs, Bobby Roth was raised in the family restaurant.  In 1971, his father Robert, founded the Steak Knife in the Lakeview section of New Orleans, run by the father and partner, local restaurateur Ernie Masson.

Bobby started in the kitchen and front of the house in 1972 and graduated from the CIA in 1980.  His younger brother, Guy, started in the kitchen in 1973, graduated from the UNO’s Roland Behan’s Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism School, and then went on to the CIA, graduating in 1985.

In 1986, Bobby and Guy Roth bought out partner, Ernie Masson, and in 1988 their father, Robert Roth, passed away.  Chef Bobby Roth runs the kitchen, and his brother Guy runs the front of the house.  In 1991, they moved across the street into the old French Market Homestead Bank branch.

In May of 1992, Great Chefs television showed up to tape Chef Bob Roth preparing an Osso Buco entrée, a Soft Shell Crawfish w/Mustard Sauce, and  Chocolate Mousse Cake with Strawberry Sauce, which appeared in the Great Chefs, the Louisiana New Garde series that aired over the Discovery Channel.

The Roth’s Steak Knife will be celebrating their 43rd anniversary in December of 2014.  Great Chefs congratulates the Roth Family!
