Chef Robb Sullivan brings his traditional southern style to the plate with a creative, fresh, and new approach to comfort food.
Originally from Baton Rouge, LA, Chef Robb has lived in New England since 2001. As a child, Robb – to his family known as “Slide” – always found himself on the apron strings of his paternal grandmother Martha “Madear” Sullivan. This is where Robb gets his strong passion to care for others through food.
Having worked in the restaurant industry throughout his college life, he decided his calling was not to maintain computer systems, but to bring that comfort and caring personality to every guest he touches through the food he cooks, the cocktails he create or the wine he recommends. Robb has worked in all parts of the restaurant from Dishwasher to Manager and many types of restaurants – mom and pop cafe’s, corporate chains and privately owned restaurants, including 51 Lincoln and Waban Kitchen. Now combining over 20 years of experience and a lifetime of love, he opens Madear’s in Manchester, NH.
