Job Details

We are looking for Sommeliers to join our opening team! We are looking for individuals to work in conjunction with our wine director to finalize our wine offerings, to provide continued education for our team, and to evolve the list moving forward. This is an ideal position for someone whose excitement for wine is matched by their deep commitment to guest service & hospitality in a fine dining setting.

We are building a team of individuals focused on genuine hospitality and teamwork - ones who want to become valuable members of a successful service team. The wine list will have a strong Italian focus while also featuring wines from the world's other classic/great regions.

Our Sommeliers aide the beverage program in all facets including but not limited to the following:

  • Cellar, eurocave and the wine fridge maintenance; organization, stocked, cleanliness.
  • Be an authority on the wines used in the restaurant for the uses of wine pairings, by the glass, and those represented as bottle selections on the restaurant’s wine list.

At Al Coro we value our employees and are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming work culture. We believe in a ‘whole house’ mentality and we expect all departments (Pastry, Savory, Dining Room, and Facilities) to support and motivate each other to achieve our goal of guest satisfaction. 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.

Al Coro is anticipated to open mid/late May.

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.

Italian

Fine Dining

Part of 85 Tenth Restaurants LLC

Overseen by Chef Melissa Rodriguez, Al Coro will occupy the soaring restaurant on the corner of 16th Street and Tenth Avenue. Al Coro will serve a combination of simple (regional, traditional) preparations of Italian food and more imaginative, elegantly-plated dishes of Chef Rodriguez’s design.

Every meal at Al Coro will start with a giant, table-filling spread of antipasti served in mismatched bowls and platters that blanket the table. Following starters, we’ll offer more delicate, individually-plated pastas and proteins. All of the food will be served the way it might be at the fancy home of a friend who was cooking for you. Some pastas and proteins will be served communally; others will be presented then plated in the kitchen.

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.
