Chef Robbie Richter

Chef Robbie “Bobby Luau” Richter cut his teeth on such classic American-Chinese restaurants as Lum’s, King Yum, and Hong Fat in Queens, New York City. As a child his favorite dish was BBQ spare ribs, so it was only natural Chef Robbie would go on to become an award-winning barbecue pitmaster years later. After a more than a decade on the competitive barbecue circuit—including victories at countless regional competitions as well as wins at the prestigious national contests like the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue in Lynchburg, Tenn., and the American Royal Invitational Competition in Kansas City–he went on to work for several Michelin acclaimed restaurants, including Fatty Cue, which also received two stars from The New York Times. In addition, he developed and supervised the execution of the Texas style smoked meats at Hill Country Barbecue Market, which also received two stars from the Times. 

While at Fatty Cue, Chef Robbie mastered the vibrant flavors of Southeast Asia under the tutelage of Zak Pelaccio, and they have remained a strong influence on his cuisine, along with his early childhood Chinese food memories. He has been coming to Boca Raton since the 1980s and recently returned to the land of the royal palms. He immediately fell in love all over again with the South Florida lifestyle, but found one thing was lacking, Chinese food, in particular dim sum and classic Cantonese. In this spirit Chef Robbie created Royal Palms Dim Sum Club, which offers everything from the classics of his childhood like King Yum Shrimp Toast and Barbecue Spare Ribs to his gourmet spins on classic dim sum and signature creations like Reuben Egg Rolls and Xing Jiang Pan Fried Lamb Dumplings.
