Candidates can expect to interact with guests and provide front of house service including occasionally taking orders and running food. Key responsibilities include working a high volume cold station, overseeing prep production, managing a small staff, placing kitchen orders and serving as a gateway between our strong prep team and fired up front of house staff.
The team at Dizengoff provides an always-fresh, satisfying meal for every slice of society. The menu at Dizengoff changes daily and with the season, centered around Middle Eastern hummus platters with a focus on vegetable toppings and fresh-baked pita made on-site in an open kitchen.
Dizengoff was founded in Philadelphia in the Summer of 2014, built from the popularity and admiration for the hummus at Zahav, the pioneering Israeli restaurant from multiple James Beard Award-winning restaurateurs, Chef Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook. Over the past 10 years of Zahav, the restaurant has arguably put Israeli cooking on-the-map in the US.
Sister restaurants along with Zahav, include Federal Donuts, Goldie, Abe Fisher, and The Rooser, all in Philadelphia.
