21 Club, a New York gastronomical destination for almost 85 years, has announced that they have appointed Sylvian Delpique as the new executive chef. Delpique began his career in his native Savoie region of France and most recently worked at L’Escale in Connecticut. He will be replacing John Greeley, who had served as head chef since 2006. A representative from the 21 Club said that chef Delpique plans on breathing new life into the West Midtown restaurant’s classic dishes while still “paying respect and homage to the decades of history before him.”
Chef Delpique has been stateside for the past 14 years, working at such prestigious venues as Terrance Brennan’s Artisanal and the David Burke Restaurant Group. Delpique will announce new menus for the restaurant later this spring.
