Check out REX 1516′s Executive Chef Regis Jansen on Thrillist!

Thrillist stopped by REX 1516 this week to meet Executive Chef Regis Jansen and sample some of the Southern-style fare. Here’s what you need to know about South Street’s newest hotspot: -REX 1516 is located at 1516 South Street (duh!) in the yet-unnamed “west of Broad” neighborhood -Interesting to note, REX means “king” in Latin and is also a play on Executive Chef Regis’ name -Pastry Chef Shamus Moriarty bakes all bread in-house -REX’s owners, Jill Weber and Evan Malone, went for a “faded mansion” feel, and the bar features reclaimed wood from the Frank Furnesse-designed Rittenhouse Club
