Earlier this week we broke the news that chef Barry Koslow is preparing to leave DGS Delicatessen for a fine-dining kitchen. The destination: a yet-to-be-revealed concept at the W Hotel.

The W announced on Tuesday that celebrity chef-restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten had reached the end of his five-year contract, and that J&G Steakhouse will close on June 23. Details on the restaurant that’ll take its place are few, other than that the eatery will be an upscale concept helmed by Koslow. In addition to opening DGS, the toque has worked in a variety of kitchens, from Tallula to 2941 and Citronelle. We’ll keep you updated as details become available.
