RIP Colin Devlin (Dressler, DuMont, DuMont Burger)


Recommended Posts

Colin Devlin, the Brooklyn restaurateur behind Dumont, DuMont Burger, and the Michelin starred Dressler has died of an apparent suicide. He leaves behind a wife and children. Dressler had been suddenly shuttered recently, and it seems that his other restaurants had financial troubles ahead. Here is a collection of remembrances from friends and fans.

DuMont and DuMont Burger were two of the first restaurants I ate in after moving to New York, and remained two of my favorites in Williamsburg. Suicide and what leads to it are terrible and complex things and beyond me to discuss, but I feel for his family and employees. He'll be missed.


”In Demerara some of the rum producers have a unique custom of placing chunks of raw meat in the casks to assist in aging, to absorb certain impurities, and to add a certain distinctive character.” -Peter Valaer, "Foreign and Domestic Rum," 1937
