Chef Biography

Robert Holley was born and raised on Long Island, and at the age of 17 took a job as cook at the Good Samaritan Hospital on Long Island, which led him to enroll in the Culinary Institute.  After graduating in 1987, he went to work for Great Chef Gilbert Le Coze and Gilbert’s sister, Maguy Le Coze, at La Bernadin.

Four year later, Le Coze moved Chef Holley to Miami (and Great Chef Eric Ripert replaced chef Holley at La Bernadin) to open Brasserie Le Coze. Shortly thereafter, in 1994 they opened a second Brasserie Le Coze in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, and Chef Robert was called upon to make it happen again.

In 1997, Great Chefs caught up with him in Atlanta to film several dishes for their Great Chefs of the South series for the Discovery Channel.  In 2000, Pano Karatassos, of Pano’s & Paul’s fame, hired Chef Robert Holley to lead the kitchen of his Atlanta Fish Market where he remains today, in 2015.
