Former Nine 05 Chef Hired at District American Kitchen

On the heels of chef Nathan Crouser's recent departure, District American Kitchen has hired Jay Bogsinske as its new chef de cuisine. Yesterday was his first day on the job.

Before coming to the Sheraton Downtown's in-house eatery, Bogsinske was chef de cuisine at Nine 05 until it closed up shop two months ago. In the interim, I spotted him at St. Francis several weeks back. His resume also includes working as the corporate executive chef for LGO Hospitality and Chelsea's Kitchen, as well as chef de cuisine at Zinc Bistro.

Since District recently had a menu revamp for summer, it's not expected that Bogsinske will roll out any major changes until this fall.
