Job Details

Rezdora is an Italian Restaurant dedicated to the food & hospitality of the Emilia Romagna region in Italy. The restaurant was founded by chef Stefano Secchi and entrepreneur David Switzer and we are projecting to open in late April 2019.  Mr. Secchi’s father is from Italy and he has worked and cooked in the homeland for 3 years including at Osteria Francescana, All’Enoteca and Hosteria Giusti, based in Modena, Emilia Romagna and Canale, Piemonte respectively.  

We have received great reviews even in our early stages of our restaurant.  There is a huge amount of opportunity to grow with us.

Our service team will be led by Sidonie Rodman.  Sidonie grew up working in her family’s hotels and has 6 years of NYC restaurant experience including at Dirty French, the Wythe Hotel and as part of the opening management team for Agern restaurant.  She was also part of the management team at both The Breslin and Houseman.  Sidonie believes that a culture built on hospitality, with focus on how you treat each other and continuous education, are the cornerstones for a positive, happy and courteous team that works cohesively together.

We are currently looking for a passionate MAITRE’D whom embodies a hospitality spirit and ability to work gracefully under pressure.

We are an employee-first establishment, where we believe that working together as a focused team dedicated to not only an unforgettable guest experience but also towards a work-life balance, will serve our guests in the best fashion.

  • Opportunity to be leader of the front of house, to inspire the hospitality culture of our organization
  • A 20% discount when dining at the restaurant
  • Vacation time after 1 year of employment
  • Competitive compensation

Traits we’re looking for:

  • Values that are most important to us:
    • Hospitable Desire or the innate desire to do things for others above and beyond what we would find at a traditional restaurant or dining experience…make them remember you
    • Greatness/Dedication or running your position so other owners would look at you as an example of how things SHOULD be done versus how they ARE done
    • Integrity or always doing the right thing, especially when no-one is watching
    • Sense of Urgency & Creativity during service, and instilling in the staff a need for swift but elegant service
  • 2+ years of Maitre D experience
  • Graciously ensure guest satisfaction by collecting detailed guest notes
  • Ability to plan the seating order to maximize the dining room
