Job Details

With growth, comes opportunity.. Cafe Altro Paradiso is currently seeking a Sous Chef with talent, ambition and passion for the craft we love, to assist in growing and supporting our kitchen team.

Opened in 2016 by chef and owner Ignacio Mattos, Café Altro Paradiso, 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.

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

Located on a bright downtown corner, Altro Paradiso serves chef-owner Ignacio Mattos' light, satisfying takes on Italian cuisine: a beloved fennel salad with provolone cheese, arancini dipped in Calabrian chili oil, and house-made candele cacio e pepe, to name but a few classics. Though Altro frequently ranks among the best places to eat in New York City, it's a pretty laid-back place that tends to attract quite a few regulars from the neighborhood.

At the moment, we are serving guests exclusively on our patio, which looks out onto Hudson Square. We’re also providing delivery and takeaway services, including a weekly To-Go Box filled with pastas, pantry items, sweets, and other dishes to enjoy at home.
