You will ensure efficient restaurant operation, as well as maintain high productivity, quality, and customer-service standards.
To be successful in this role, you’ll need management skills and experience in the front of the house.

Ultimately, you will ensure our restaurant runs smoothly through our day to day operations and customers have the highest quality dining experiences possible, anxious to return for another meal.
Food and wine knowledge is a must. This role will work closely with our kitchen team and participate in the upkeep of our beverage list - working closely with the bar team to ensure drink lists are kept interesting, well balanced and fresh.
We will expect you to close at least two night per week, but the weekly schedule can change and we can be very flexible. You will need to be willing to work two day shifts per week as well and be available a few evenings and one or two weekend nights.
