Job Details

With growth, comes opportuntiy..Matter-House incorporating estela, Flora Bar and Cafe Altro Paradiso are looking for people with talent, ambition and passion for the craft we love, to assist in growing and supporting our kitchen teams.

Opened in 2013 by chef and owner Ignacio Mattos, Estela offers a charming-but-edgy experience, located just above street level on Houston in SoHo. Described as “bold, bright, layered, playful, and surprising”, Estela’s cuisine toes the line between comfort and experiment, familiarity and exploration. Estela has featured on the World's 50 Best List and was recently awarded it's first Michelin star.

Café Altro Paradiso, opened in 2016 by chef and owner Ignacio Mattos, is inspired by the flavors, textures and warmth of Italian food and wines traditions. Located on a sunny corner across from Hudson Square, it takes cues from classic European bistros and New York’s neighborhood institutions.

Opened in 2016, Flora Bar is the third restaurant from chef Ignacio Mattos, situated inside the Met Breuer, a landmarked building in the Brutalist style. In 2016, Flora was named one of the city’s best new restaurants by the New York Times, and New York Magazine has called it the best restaurant on the Upper East Side.

We are looking for commited individuals with passion and tenacity who can express a mentoring, education-focused style of leadership and able to balance the many demands of these dynamic Management positions.

Understanding the personnel, operational and financial demands of a restaurant and it’s kitchen operations are an essential foundation.  Moreover, a strong candidate is able to efficiently synthesize information, prioritize tasks and oversee their completion, and manage demands on the go in order to ensure successful service.

 Additionally, a Sous Chef on our team must understand the following:

 Quality and consistency in our food is our highest priority. Our team must ensure that all kitchen staff are able to prepare their station and themselves to the highest 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 understand and prepare our food 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 Chef de Cuisine and be expected to assume responsibility at this level as you will be left to run shifts and lead the team.  You will be adept at working with senior team members, not just the CDC, but also the GM and the front of house managers as well.

 Essential Requirements

  • Proven kitchen management experience, 2-3 years as a Sous Chef 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

Estela is a restaurant in downtown Manhattan from chef Ignacio Mattos. Set one floor above Houston Street, it is a bistro at heart, taking familiar ideas like tartare, ricotta dumplings, burrata on toast, fried rice, and steak, and presenting them in new, satisfying ways. The bar is open late, and you can come in for just a glass and a small bite, should you feel like it. Now in its 7th year, Estela has earned numerous accolades, including a place on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List, a Michelin star and two stars from both New York Magazine and the New York Times.
