Barry Koslow, the chef behind DGS Delicatessen since its opening, will part ways with the restaurant as of June 20.* Co-owner Nick Wiseman says no major changes are in store for the Dupont deli. Taking Koslow’s place is Brian Robinson, a sous chef at the eatery who worked alongside Koslow.

“He’s basically smoked every pastrami, made every pickle,” says Wiseman.

Koslow has made culinary waves since DGS opened nearly two years ago with his fresh takes on deli fare and Jewish cuisine. When reached for a comment, the chef says he’s already landed in a new kitchen, with details on where coming soon.

“It’s a very exciting opportunity for me,” says Koslow of the new spot, which he says is a fine-dining restaurant. “I’m returning to my roots.”

We’ll keep you updated when details become available.
