Flora Bar is the third restaurant from chef Ignacio Mattos, located in Marcel Breuer’s iconic building occupied by the Met Museum. In the dining room, Flora Bar’s offerings reflect the nuance and international influence of its downtown sister, estela, but Flora also offers a wide range of options, with fresh-baked goods and sandwiches in our café for museum guests and neighbors. Flora currently seeks a Assistant General Manager passionate for its cuisine who can express a mentoring, education-focused style of leadership; and who is able to balance the many demands of this dynamic position.
Understanding the personnel, operational and financial demands of a restaurant are an essential foundation. Moreover, a successful candidate is able to efficiently synthesize information, prioritize tasks and oversee their completion, and manage demands on the go in order to ensure smooth operations.
Additionally, an Assistant General Manager on our team must understand the following:
Guest experience is our highest priority. Our team must ensure that all service staff are able to guide each guest through their experience and upholding service standards.
Company culture and staff education are integral in our development. We believe that our employees are our greatest resource. Creating a diverse and informed team and providing all of our staff with the tools and information they need to serve our guests is essential.
Communities are essential to our success. We welcome an endless variety of people through our doors every day. Whether they are purveyors, staff, guests or a new neighbor we depend on them. In order to continue growing, we actively seek ways to engage and embrace that community.
You will work closely with the General Manager and be expected to assume responsibility at this level as you will run shifts and lead the team. You will be adept at working with senior team members, not just the GM, but the CDC, Beverage Director, and Director of Operations.
- Proven restaurant management experience, 2-3 years at Service Manager or AGM level preferred
- Passion for creating incredible guest experience
- Emotional intelligence with a desire to grow your leadership skills
- Organized approach to managing yourself and your team
- Attention to detail
- Potential and ambition beyond this role

From the chef/owner of the critically-acclaimed restaurant Estela in Nolita and Café Altro Paradiso in SoHo, comes Flora Bar and Flora Coffee. Flora Bar takes inspiration from lively, approachable restaurants in New York and Europe and is open beyond museum hours. The menu emphasizes seafood and vegetables and strives to be tasty and playful. You can stop in for a full dinner, a small bite or a drink at the long bar.
The Flora Bar team aim to create an atmosphere of accessibility and fun similar to what they’ve cultivated downtown. The partnership with the museum came about from The Met’s desire to bring the Estela team’s light and ethereal tone—and perhaps foremost its sensitivity to the setting and location of a space—to the iconic Breuer building.
