- It was announced earlier this week that DGS Delicatessen chef Barry Koslow planned to leave the Dupont Circle deli he helped open. Today, we learned that Koslow has taken a position as chef de cuisine for whatever dining concept will replace J&G Steakhouse at the W Washington Hotel later this summer. Koslow has also served as executive chef at Tallula/EatBar and Mendocino Grille and has spent time in such kitchens as Equinox, 2941 and the late Citronelle.
