Born in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, Bob Lynn grew up around classic Midwestern comfort foods. That was the foundation for his culinary journey, where he’s operated more than 50 restaurants.
Through family and friends, Bob was able to join one of Chicago’s finest German restaurants at the age of 13 as sous chef. Before long, his steak tartar recipe and other simple “Berlin Style Bistro” food were big hits. Showcasing a natural culinary talent at a very young age is eventually what brought Bob to a leading restaurant group, eventually becoming executive vice president. Twenty five years later he then turned his attention to a a small neighborhood with a citrusy past, which was the seed that became the multimillion-dollar LGO Hospitality.
When he’s is not in the restaurants, Bob is testing new recipes, studying art, doing yoga, and listening to music that eventually makes its way into the dining room.
