Job Details

After taking the Parisian dining scene by storm, internationally acclaimed chef Daniel Rose returns to his home soil with Le Coucou, his New York City collaboration with restaurateur Stephen Starr. The Roman and Williams-designed space is a gracious modern nod to fine European gastronomy, with crisp linens, flickering candles and whitewashed brick serving as subtle framework for Rose’s vivid cooking. Updating classical French cuisine with charm and verve, Rose shrinks the intercontinental divide separating the City of Light and the Big Apple, proving that the true essence of fine French dining can thrive in any time zone.

Le Coucou is seeking talented and ambitious PREP COOKS who are team players and are dedicated to continuous learning. 

We Offer: An opportunity for career advancement and professional growth. Competitive pay, paid time off, dining discounts, comprehensive benefits coverage, commuter benefits, 401k options, and more!

  • Culinary school education is a plus
  • Strong knife skills and basic recipe knowledge 
  • A strong attention to detail and experience with portioning accurately to minimize waste
