Chef Shuffles

regjensenchef.jpgRex 1516's opening executive chef, Regis Jansen, is leaving his post due to complications from his battle with Cystic Fibrosis. This is terrible news, as chef Jensen has gotten serious critical acclaim for his southern cuisine at Rex 1516. But, sous chef Justin Swain has been training up for his new role as executive chef, so there shouldn't be a drop off in quality coming out of the kitchen. Feel better soon, chef, and good luck to your replacement. [EaterWire]
