Meet Executive Chef Darryn Gray

Raised in Bear, Delaware, Darryn Gray grew up in close knit family that didn’t need an excuse to have friends and family over for dinner.  For Darryn, food was simply a necessity at first, often cooking something after school.  Soon food became a fascination, as Darryn wanted to expand his knowledge to different cultures’ and regions’ cuisine. 

Darryn began his restaurant adventures at Camp Arrowhead in Lewes, Delaware, washing dishes.  After being  a server at numerous restaurants and managing Freddy Wraps in Newark, Delaware,  Darryn realized his love of food and decided to go to culinary school.  He graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia in 2011, doing his work study at Harry’s Savoy Grill.  After numerous kitchen jobs, he eventually became the head chef of the Dupont Memorial House, an overnight retreat house located in downtown Rehoboth Beach.  At the Dupont Hosue, he would craft his style of classic southern American food with ethnic influences. 

Being a patron on of The Pond since moving to Rehoboth Beach. Darryn is excited to take on the position of Executive Chef and to contribute to the already stellar reputation of the Rehoboth’s favorite locals bar & grill!

This Week at The Pond, April 1 to April 8

All of us are excited about our Studio 54 Dance Party on April 6th at 9:30pm.  Liz & Keara have been busy and will start the decorating on Thursday night.  Expect to see disco balls and lots of gold.  Donny cut out and Liz painted the Studio 54 Moon and Spoon.  It’s going to be a blast so dress in your disco clothes (or just come as you are) and live or re-live the Disco Era!  We will be giving out prizes for most creative Studio 54 costumes, individual and duo/group!
