Job Details
Our busy Italian-inspired restaurant highlights seasonal flavors and rustic yet refined cuisine. We are seeking a talented, passionate, and experienced Sous Chef. Ideal candidates will possess strong experience in Italian Cuisine and a background working in busy full-service operations at a nationally acclaimed level. We are looking for candidates with at least 1 year of experience as a Sous Chef or Tournant and at least 3 years of experience as a cook in notable restaurants. Formal culinary training is favorable but significant experience in notable kitchens may be equally weighed. Candidates must be comfortable with all aspects of running a kitchen including active cooking during service, expediting, recipe creation, kitchen management, ordering/inventory, and administration. 

As part of a small NYC-based restaurant group, our nine-year-old restaurant has become a favorite for featuring Italian-inspired seasonal cuisine, showcasing bold flavors and craveable comforting classics. We hope to find a passionate, talented, and organized sous chef who will be equally as excited to create new dishes as to ensure consistency of the existing concept. We operate for dinner seven days a week (averaging 250-300 covers), and brunch on Sunday. The sous chef is expected to work a combination of day and evening shifts to fully engage in daily prep and operations.

Leadership, teamwork and care are key values of our management philosophy. As a member of our management team, the Sous Chef is expected to cultivate a positive work environment and foster teamwork at all times. Candidates should be prepared to lead by example with an admirable work ethic as well as a caring demeanor for all members of the team. Strong communication and organizational skills will be needed to foster a cooperative relationship with FOH team in an open kitchen environment and maximize staff retention. 

Qualified candidates should have:
- At least one year experience as a sous chef or tournant, and/or 3+ years as line cook in notable restaurant kitchens
- A passion for food and Italian cuisine as well as a dedication to freshness and seasonality
- NYC food handlers license
- Strong organizational and communication skills
- Ability to lead and adapt in a dynamic and fast-paced environment 
- Attention to detail and exceptional work ethic
- Excitement to learn, create, grow, and inspire others

We offer competitive salary, bonus incentives, health and dental benefits, and ongoing growth opportunity.

Please submit a resume for consideration.
