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!
