Executive Chef

Thomas Gloster

Chef Tom is a Food Network Chopped Champion, and has many years of experience in the restaurant business. His mastery of local cuisine, is inspired by a childhood spent at markets and farms from Little Italy, through the east end of Long Island, and into the Hudson Valley and the Upstate New York community.  His menu for Rustic Root Kitchen spotlights New American cuisine, thoughtfully prepared with a focus on local ingredients and creative twists.

His deep and diverse industry experience has led him to wide acclaim not only from critics and media, but also from his colleagues. In fact, his true passion lies in inspiring local chefs to evolve beyond the walls of their respective restaurants to help put Long Island on the map as a true culinary destination.
