Job Details

Russ & Daughters is one of New York’s most beloved culinary institutions, with over 100 years of history. We are looking for new members to join our management team to lead both the kitchen and the front-of-house at our restaurant, Russ & Daughters Cafe, on Orchard Street.

Russ & Daughters Cafe opened in 2014, on the 100th anniversary of Russ & Daughters — the world-famous appetizing store and New York City institution. Now, after more than a year and a half of operating for takeout only, we will embark on a full reopening in the second quarter of 2022. We are looking for someone to join us as soon as possible, as we continue to execute a high volume of pick-up and delivery orders this winter and surrounding Passover, and simultaneously begin to shift our attention toward reopening.

  • Manage all staff and monitor staff performance; constantly coaching and training new and existing staff.
  • Have an active role in hiring and staffing: scheduling interviews, training new hires, upholding standards.
  • Keep service running smoothly in the dining room by coaching and directing FOH staff through busy shifts.
  • Oversee all waitlist and dining room seating for best customer experience and to control flow of walk-in traffic. Work with hosts to manage customer entry with attention to all Covid related requirements for health and safety.
  • Ensure that quality and speed are being achieved by employees working behind the bar through adherence to our cocktail and drink recipes.
  • Train staff to be knowledgeable about our wine and spirits offerings.
  • Address complaints from customers, and deescalate conflicts.
  • Be an active user of our technology, and have proficiency with Microsoft Excel. Be able to learn and confidently use our POS software. (Both front-end and back-end.)
  • Communicate over email and Slack.
  • Be familiar with delivery (TryCaviar) order preparation and management.
  • Have an NYC Food Protection certification.
  • Monitor all equipment, maintenance of facility and cleanliness.
  • Minimize costs and waste, maximize staff productivity and time management.
  • Place orders with a variety of beverage, food and supplies vendors. Establish and maintain relationships with vendor reps. Problem-solve supply chain challenges.
  • Oversee and manage receiving of all food product, liquor, wine.
  • Complete and manage daily/monthly inventory; ensure and maintain proper labeling, packaging, storage and rotation of all product.
  • Spanish language ability is a major plus.

Russ & Daughters’ business is incredibly holiday-focused. We are busiest on and leading up to all holidays, including Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, Passover, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur. Open availability is required overall, but especially during these times.

We offer competitive salary, vacation time, and benefits.
