Jennifer Carroll Is Leaving 10 Arts

Chef Jennifer Carroll is indeed leaving 10 Arts this October. Ritz-Carlton general manager Olivia Brown tells us that Carroll “has decided to leave the hotel effective October 6th, to explore a variety of exciting options open to her.” No word on where Carroll is heading or if she’s going to open her own restaurant, though she has hinted at that recently.

Jennifer has been at 10 Arts since the restaurant opened in May of 2008 and has made a name for herself at the restaurant and on TV where she made two appearances on Bravo’s Top Chef.

As for 10 Arts and Eric Ripert, who she thanks through her lawyer Christopher Cabbott, a nationwide search will be undertaken with a new chef on board by early November. Ripert has mentored Carroll through the years since when she was a sous chef at Ripert’s Le Bernardin.
