Bobby Rust

Bobby Rust (1982), Chef de Cuisine at Bridges, learned the trade from top chefs such as Robert Kranenborg, Jonnie Boer and Sergio Herman. He found his way to Bridges in 2014 via master chef Ron Blaauw, with whom he had worked as a chef in the two-star Ron Gastrobar restaurant (2013 – 2014). Previous experience included spells at the top restaurants Le Cirque, De Librije and Oud Sluis.

Rust has been reigning over Bridges since November 2014, under the watchful eye of master chef Ron Blaauw. Ambition and passion are Rust’s driving forces: “I got where I am today thanks to sheer hard work under the greatest masters of the trade. I’m driven by a need for perfection and a passion for the basics.” Rust describes his style as «artisan, wild, but with absolute refinement».

His boundless talent and continual pursuit of the ultimate level are perfectly suited to the edifying gastronomic quality and service found at Bridges. The star restaurant at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam gives guests a culinary experience that will be etched in their memory forever.
