Rob worked around first restaurant (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bistro

Here is my best explanation:

'restaurant' is the definition.

(bistro is a kind of restaurant)

'rob worked around first' is the subsidiary indication.

'worked' indicates an anagram.

'around' indicates putting letters inside.

'first' becomes 'ist' (**).

'rob' is an anagram of 'bro'.

'bro' placed around 'ist' is 'bistro'.

(Other definitions for bistro that I've seen before include "Cafe/restaurant", "Cheap restaurant", "Modest restaurant", "Restaurant", "Little restaurant", "Small French bar and restaurant", "Informal French restaurant", "Small restaurant - robs it (anag)", "Small bar-cum-restaurant" and "Small informal French restaurant".)
