Chef Barry Koslow, formally of DGS (Deli/Rest. in Dupont), to be Chef of new restaurant replacing J&G Steakhouse

515 15th Street, NW

From a press release:

“W Washington DC, the closest hotel to the White House, announces the appointment of Barry Koslow to the position of Chef de Cuisine of the new restaurant concept within the hotel. Mr. Koslow will develop and execute the menus for a new dining concept that will launch at the hotel this summer.

A classically-trained chef who graduated with honors from L’Academie de Cuisine, Chef Koslow heads to W from the highly-acclaimed DGS Delicatessen, where he served as Executive Chef since the shop’s founding in 2011. Prior, he served as Executive Chef of Tallula/Eatbar and Mendecino Grille. A Washington, DC area native, Chef Koslow began his career with Chef Todd Gray at Equinox. His rise through the Washington culinary ranks also included turns with 2941, Michel Richard Citronelle and Circle Bistro.

“I’m very excited to return to my roots of fine dining,” said Chef Koslow. “This position is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work in a storied hotel with its eyes firmly set on the future. I look forward to announcing our plans very soon.”
