Candidate kitchen responsibilities include: Ordering; maintaining inventory; managing the kitchen staff and work space with the highest cleanliness standards; creating new menu items; overseeing daily prep production; and leading staff with an exemplary work ethic and unwavering positive attitude.
We pride ourselves in providing a satisfying meal for every slice of society, with the belief that the guest experience matters most. A minimum of 2 years experience is preferred but not absolutely required. Please respond with your resume and a brief cover letter explaining why you feel you would be the best fit for this position.
