Host - A Rake’s Progress
James Beard award-winning chef Spike Gjerde, opened a restaurant inside of the newly constructed Line Hotel DC in the Adams Morgan neighborhood. Our Hosts function as a part of our warm, professional, and positive host team, and they are responsible for managing reservations and service accommodations to ensure balance in service and assignment of each table. Our Hosts are the essential component to the proper flow of the restaurant and guest experience. As there are often competing priorities throughout service, Hosts must manage flow and receiving of guests, the ability manage the waits at our door, shift priorities and remain calm under pressure are key to our most successful Hosts. Additionally, our Hosts should convey a genuine interest and appreciation for our provisional offerings to our guests as well as perform other duties as might arise during service. All hosts will be required to work reservation shifts which includes answering calls from guests and the public, making reservations, and directing information to various individuals within the organization.

At our table, you join us in supporting thoughtful agriculture that respects the abundance and traditions of the region while helping to ensure its future. Our restaurant is strictly devoted to responsibly sourced local food and beverage from the Chesapeake region.
