Job Details
We are looking for Bartenders who are passionate about their craft, committed to excellence, and who want to become valuable members of a successful service team. We want Bartenders who can create unique and personalized guest experiences for all: from guests who are dining at the bar, to guests who are grabbing a quick drink after work. Bartenders must possess leadership skills, be personable with guests and be able to anticipate their needs- working with a warm, knowledgeable & noticeably appreciative demeanor. It is the responsibility of the Bartender to coordinate bar activities to achieve the restaurant’s common goal of guest satisfaction. Bartenders must be able to cooperate with Managers and co-workers as this role is integral to the success of the restaurant. Above all, the Bartender must always lead by example.

As an employee, you will interact with all of these departments regularly and should be able to communicate effectively and respectfully with your co-workers & managers.

Mel's is anticipated to open in February 2022. 

This is a full time position and requires flexible schedule availability: including nights, weekends and lunches. The restaurant will be closed for Thankskgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. 

Our restaurants offer access to insurance enrollments (must maintain 25 hours per week), no cost life insurance, a short term disability policy, an Employee Assistance Program (with access to free mental health counseling), 40% dining discounts at group restaurants, referral bonuses, and more!

There are oddly few neighborhood restaurants on the far west side of Manhattan. We’ve worked in the neighborhood for years, and we’ve never had a pizzeria nearby. Mel's is meant to be the neighborhood spot we’ve always wanted: the go-to destination for parents who live in the area, tech workers at Chelsea Market, and off-duty restaurant folks.

A casual pizzeria restaurant, it will serve antipasti in oversize bowls, pizzas, and a showstopper protein special each night all cooked in the wood-fired oven.

Jeff Katz and James Kent were introduced by a mutual friend in late 2017. They gambled on each other and partnered to open a pair of restaurants and a cocktail bar in the landmark Art Deco building at 70 Pine Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. Crown Shy, the first of those restaurants, opened in March of 2019 and earned a Michelin star less than a year later. After many months of pandemic-related delays, the duo opened SAGA and Overstory in the building’s tiered spire.

In the summer of 2021, Kent and Katz partnered with Melissa Rodriguez (former Executive Chef of Del Posto) to take over the restaurant space at 85 Tenth Avenue. In early 2022, they plan to open three concepts there: a fine-dining Italian restaurant, a pizza restaurant, and a cocktail bar.
