Job Summary

You may be familiar with Kumiko as a cocktail bar, which is part of what we are, but Kumiko is also a dining bar, where food and drink are given the same amount of attention and care.

The ideal person will have experience cooking from an a la carte menu. We are a neighborhood place with the intentions and practices of a fine-dining restaurant – fast-paced, and refined. You’re not just another cook, but an integral part of the kitchen team—you’ll be prepping and executing dishes side-by-side with our Chef de Cuisine Emery Ebarle.

A background in Japanese cooking and ingredients is great, but not essential. What is essential is that you are a kind person, a hard worker, and someone who enjoys cooking and is ready to learn more and grow with a small team.
