About us: Our menus are largely fruit and vegetable focused with respect to the seasons. While our menus do feature proteins from our local farmers we are not a steak and potato kind of place. We dedicate long hours to constructing thoughtful menus. While we do love luxury ingredients, this is not our focus. Our mission is to take lost or forgotten foods and methods of preservation and apply them to our season's bounty-extracting new flavors, ideas, and presentations. We try to be as sustainable and/or organic as possible.
About you: While proven chef experience will definitely be considered, our kitchen is in our dining room so this position is atypical and an amount of grace and delicacy are required with our food that goes beyond the normal kitchen job. Attention to detail and finesse are necessities. Neatness and tidiness will need to be a personal value. Contributing the highest quality food every day also will need to be a personal value. In such a small kitchen, there is no room for error. If you are in the business of taking shortcuts or cooking for your ego- you need not apply.
We are most eager to hire someone with interest in the work we are doing at the restaurant - especially since you will be a part of a tight knit kitchen crew that is building their experience while pushing themselves to perform at a higher level each day. It is extremely important that you hold yourself to a high standard and are dedicated to this craft and self motivated to excel here. We all make a point to learn and support each other's stations and be versatile well rounded chefs in every regard. That extends to service and guest relations, as well as receiving orders, keeping the restaurant spotless, and contributing to creating the dishes.
If this sounds like a position for you, we'd be glad to schedule a preliminary meeting, which we'd like you to be prepared to follow with a stage in the kitchen.
Please email resume and cover letter.
POC/LGBTQ encouraged to apply.
