Chef Jennifer Nguyen Leaves Zentan

jennifer_mugZentan chef Jennifer Nguyen has parted ways with the Donovan House's Japanese restaurant. Nguyen took over the kitchen in the spring of 2013 after celebrity chef Susur Lee, who opened the restaurant, split with Zentan.

Jacque Riley, publicist for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, sent Y&H the following statement:

Chef Jennifer Nguyen has left Zentan to pursue other opportunities. We are very grateful for the passion, dedication and talent she brought to the restaurant and will be actively seeking a new executive chef who can carry the torch of Zentan. In the meantime, our team remains committed to creating the great Japanese cuisine and warm service our guests have come to expect at Zentan.

No update yet on who will takeover Nguyen's position. Y&H is trying to reach Nguyen to hear about her next move. Stay tuned.
