If a company is still using my name as executive chef and I no longer work there, can I sue?

You should send a cease/desist letter first. To sue, you need to be able to show damage to your repuation, earning ability, etc., i.e., people who would have come to you now went to the other company thinking you were there. Has anything like that happened?

The other attorney is right on point here. You can sue to have your name removed if they do not respond to a cease and desist letter. Consult with an attorney in your area for specifics.
