Job Details

This is not an easy place to work. The equipment is old, the kitchen is hot and small. If you're the type who complains at the drop of a hat this job is not for you so, please do not apply. 

The menu has 20 items total, 8-10 of which are handmade pastas. We make pasta every single day. 

We use midwestern organic and sustainably farmed produce as much as possible, including from my brothers 8-acre farm located just 30 miles away. 

We have a program dedicated to fermentation. If you have knowledge of it that is a bonus. If you don’t, you will have the opportunity to learn about it. 

We are a seasonal restaurant so our menu changes frequently; in the summer, the menu sometimes changes daily. It is a fast-paced job. 

You're responsible for your station on a daily basis. You help prep it out. You work it during service. We have prep cooks and sous chefs that help you get set up, but you will learn how to truly work a station. Youre going to work a 10 hour day, and you will get the overtime pay that comes with it. 

We are not assholes and don’t like working with assholes. If your ego doesn’t fit through the door you won’t last long here. We will treat you like the human being you are, no matter your race, religion, sexual orientation, intelligence level etc. We do not discriminate. We just want to cook delicious food. 

You will work hard here. You will learn here. You will leave a better cook from here. This is a small restaurant (64 seats in the winter) but we have a patio in the summer. It forces you to learn quickly.  

We do 200+ covers on weekends. Dinner 5 nights a week and brunch on Sundays. It is not for the meak. 

We are closed two days a week, so you can have some sort of a life outside of work. It’s important. 

You will be trained to do your job. It is a small kitchen staff (under 10) so you have the attention and assistance you will need daily. 

You must have a sense of urgency. This is a deal breaker.

 

Please provide your resume and references. Health insurance offered to all employees upon 90 days of tenure. There are opportunities here for long term career growth. If after reading this you're still intrigued, you're exactly who we are looking for.


Compensation details

Health insurance offered after 90 days. Paid vacation with tenure.
