At TORC we are looking for staff that are excited about being challenged, growing as a team, pushing to be the best version of themselves. We have a steep learning curve. We are not for everyone, for the those that are committed to hospitality, as a craft, as a way of life, you will find this to be home.
As Wine Curator and Chef, my wife Cynthia and I are proud to be 'dismantling' the fine dining experience, replacing it with a sophisticated yet relaxed evening that doesn't break the bank. Inspired by what's great; grown at local farms, foraged and fished by friends, or produced and harvested by like-minded individuals, TORC is literally never the same place twice.
With a love for Napa, a deep appreciation for each ingredient and a thirst for unique and thoughtful wine, cocktail and beer offerings, we hope our passion is palpable in every plate, sip and bite. This isn't just dinner. It's a feast for all of your senses.
