Here is my best explanation:

'restaurant' is the definition.
(bistro is a kind of restaurant)

'rob worked around first' is the wordplay.
'worked' indicates an anagram.
'around' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'first' becomes 'ist' (**).
'rob' anagrammed gives 'bro'.
'bro' going around 'ist' is 'BISTRO'.
