Jennifer Nguyen is leaving the Kimpton restaurant Zentan. The hotel company confirmed the news today in a statement:
Chef Jennifer Nguyen has left Zentan to pursue other opportunities. e 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.
Nguyen started at the restaurant in March of 2013. Her work there was well-received, lending more of a Japanese bent to the menu and adding new options like an omakase tasting. No word yet on where she's headed or who will replace her.
