The longtime chef at several Williamsburg restaurants in the Andrew Tarlow empire is moving on. Reynard chef Sean Rembold announced in an email Thursday that he is leaving the team after 11 years of working with Tarlow. He did not say where he will head next.
Rembold joined the restaurateur in 2005 at Williamsburg staple Diner, and in 2012, he became the opening chef for Wythe Hotel restaurant Reynard. Pete Wells awarded it one star, calling it a slightly more grown-up version of Tarlow’s older restaurants. After initial hype died down, Reynard eventually became a staple of the neighborhood just as Marlow & Sons and Diner did.
Reynard will be getting a new chef. Rembold “is a brilliant chef, and also a great friend,” Tarlow says in a statement. “We wish him success, and thank him for years of fun and great food.”
Here’s the statement from Rembold:
After eleven years of working with Andrew at Marlow & Sons, Diner and Reynard, I'm parting ways with this amazing team. Over the years, I've been blessed to cross paths with some of the most extraordinary coworkers, producers, and customers in the industry. Together we've won many battles, and I've learned a great deal along the way. I feel fortunate and extremely grateful to have grown tremendously through the opportunities offered to me by Andrew, Mark and Caroline.
As I move on to the next chapter in my career, I wish everyone in the Marlow universe much love and success.
