Is Anne Burrell in the Running to Be Kenmare’s Chef?

Yesterday we revealed that Paul Sevigny’s and Nur Khan’s restaurant, Kenmare, would be hosting Fashion Week parties and opening toward the end of the month. The power duo still haven’t announced a chef, but we hear Anne Burrell has taken a meeting at 98 Kenmare. Of course, we don’t know what that meeting might’ve been about, but it’s looking like Sevigny and Khan plan to install a fairly well-known chef, and it makes sense she’d be in the running given Kenmare will have a Mediterranean bent. Could she be considering this venue for her return to the business? Like most everything else surrounding Sevigny’s new project(s), everything is speculation at this point. But fun speculation nevertheless!
