Rustico Restaurant Seeks Operations Manager!
Since opening its doors in Alexandria in 2007, Rustico has offered guests a signature experience--an ambitious craft beer program, with extensive rotating menus curated by Beer Director Greg Engert, alongside a complementary offering of unpretentious seasonal cooking. With a second location in Arlington since 2010, Rustico continues to be a beloved gathering place for the communities it serves, for casual meals and celebrations alike.

Our ideal candidate is curious, driven, inspired on a daily basis by the fun, fast-paced business we work in, and the creative people we’re lucky to call colleagues.
In addition to a competitive salary, we offer fantastic benefits including:
- Medical, dental, and vision insurance,
