Job Details

Leeds Public House is looking for people.

We're a brand spanking new gastro pub in Michigan City, IN. It's about an hour drive or South Shore train ride from Chicago. Or, if you're looking to get away from the taxes and gridlock in the big city, this a very refreshing change of pace.
We hope to open up in July.

We need FOH (servers, bartenders, floor managers, bussers) and BOH (line cooks, prep cooks, dish, kitchen supervisors). We offer competitive pay and will have an health insurance plan available for our full-timers. This is a great opportunity to build some thing from the ground up.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities 

The essential functions include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Job duties and requirements:
  • Complete a daily prep list
  • Follow recipes properly
  • Maintain a clean, organized work station
  • Must be capable of lifting up to 50 lbs,
  • Check in and put away deliveries
  • Communicate with chef and kitchen staff on daily tasks
  • Always lead by example.

  • Set up station as required for all scheduled services.
  • Follow manager’s direction in regard to quantity and quality of items prepped.
  • Operate, maintain, and properly clean kitchen equipment: this includes the deep fryer, wood grill, wood oven and any other restaurant owned equipment deemed part of your cleaning duties.
  • Maintain and clean your required tools.
  • Date all food containers and rotate as per policies, making sure that all perishables are kept at proper temperatures; check pars for shift use, determine necessary preparation, freezer pull and line set up; note any out-of-stock items or possible shortages; return all food items not used to designated storage areas, being sure to cover/date all perishables.
  • Work harmoniously and professionally with co-workers and supervisors.
  • Work efficiently with a constant sense of urgency.
  • Prioritize safety above speed.  Study and know all safety policies set forth at your location.
  • Taste all food at its various stages of preparation, most importantly just before a dish is sent to a guest.  When in doubt of quality, ask kitchen manager for assistance and opinion.
  • Perform other work related tasks as required.

Minimum Qualifications (Education, Experience, Skills)

  • Willingness to work mornings, evenings and weekends as required.
  • Serve safe certification required. 

Physical Demands and Work Environment 

The work that restaurant cooks do is both physically and mentally demanding. They are on their feet much of the time.  Cooks typically work about forty hours a week. However, because the restaurant serves the public and is open seven days a week, cooks may work longer, irregular hours.
