Job Details

Gramercy Tavern is looking for a Maitre D' to join their growing team!

One of America’s most beloved restaurants, Gramercy Tavern has welcomed guests to enjoy its contemporary American cuisine, warm hospitality, and unparalleled service since 1994. Chef Michael Anthony’s fiercely seasonal menu consists of elegant dishes with a rustic influence that showcases the restaurant’s relationships with local farms and purveyors. The restaurant can be enjoyed through two distinct dining experiences: the Tavern and the Dining Room. The Tavern serves an à la carte menu in a casual, walk-in setting. The Dining Room offers fixed-price and tasting menus.

Who you are: The Maitre D’ is a vital member of the Service team, overseeing the flow of bookings to the restaurant, initial hospitality when arriving and booking reservations, and a warm goodbye. The Maitre D’ has a firm grasp on what is happening in all parts of the restaurant at all times during service to seat and fill the restaurant in such a way that maximizes the restaurant and supports the dining room and kitchen teams so that they can fulfil their roles with excellence. 

What you’ll do:

  • Create a welcoming and hospitable environment for guests whether in person or over the phone.
  • Quote accurate wait times while “finding the yes” for all guests.
  • Act as a liaison between the guest, management, service staff and kitchen and communicate accordingly.
  • Work with efficiency and a sense of urgency while remaining composed.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of reservations booking strategies and a working knowledge of all functions of Resy.
  • Coordinate with management to “build the book” and boost cover counts while taking into consideration both the needs of the business and the needs of our guests.

What we need from you:

  • 2+ years in a guest-facing restaurant role
  • A passion for guest experience and hospitality
  • Ability to walk or stand for long periods of time
  • English fluency and additional languages preferred, but not required

What you’ll get from us:

  • Competitive hourly pay + tips
  • Comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance
  • Paid Time Off to support you with an active life outside of work
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Flexible Spending Options (health care, dependent care, transit & parking)
  • Employee Assistance Program to support overall mental wellbeing
  • Generous dining discount throughout the USHG family of restaurants
  • Matched 401(k) to help you invest in your future
  • Generous Employee Referral Program
  • Access to the USHG HUGS Employee Relief Fund
  • Access to Mentor Programs, Career Development classes, and personalized career advancement support

 

Please note: This job description is not intended to be all-inclusive. This position may be required to perform other related duties to meet the ongoing needs of the restaurant.

If you have a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act or a similar law and you wish to discuss potential accommodations related to applying for employment at our company, please e-mail [email protected] for assistance.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity and inclusion and belonging at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

USHG will make reasonable accommodations under applicable law for qualified individuals to enable them to perform the essential functions of the job, unless doing so would create an undue hardship for the Company.

Benefits

USHG is proud to offer all qualified employees a package of employee benefits including; Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance, Transit Discount program, 401k, Flexible Spending, Direct Deposit, Corporate Fitness Discount programs and an Employee Dining Program.

  • Medical: Each of our PPO plans is designed to help you meet your healthcare needs and manage expenses for you (and your dependents) including the option to use in-network or out-of network providers. Our medical insurance offers three different options to employees with USHG sharing the cost of the premium with enrolled employees.
  • Dental Insurance: USHG offers two dental policies: an in-network plan, and an out-of-network plan. We cover 100% of the cost of the “In Network” Plan for you (an individual plan) or we will apply a set dollar amount per month to the cost of your plan if you choose to add dependants or to go out-of-network using the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan.
  • Vision: USHG offers a supplemental vision insurance program. The in-network plan includes an annual eye exam and a pair of glasses or set of contacts.
  • Transit Program: All employees are eligible to elect to set aside pre-tax dollars each month toward the cost of commuting. You may choose up to the Federal Allowed maximum per month and these elections are deducted pre-tax. As a result you will pay less in taxes each year.
  • 401(k) Plan: USHG offers a voluntary retirement investment plan that allows you to defer a portion of your income and use pre-tax dollars to save for your retirement. All employees who are 21 years of age or older may elect to participate after 12 months of continuous employment.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts: All employees who have completed 12 months of continuous, full-time employment may elect to set up Flexible Spending Accounts in January of each year. Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees to defer pre-tax income to pay for certain eligible expenses including health care costs not covered by health insurance, transportation to work, and qualified child care expenses. Flexible Spending allows you to increase the income you take home by reducing the amount of taxes you pay for qualified expenses.
  • Direct Deposit: We offer direct deposit of paychecks to your financial institution at no cost to you. You may sign up for direct deposit at any time.
  • Corporate Discount Programs: As a USHG employee, you can get a discounted rate at area gyms and massage services. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to stay healthy and strong!
  • Employee Dining Program: Through this program, we hope to make dining in our restaurants a reality for all our employees. The program starts out as a discount program and adds Dining Dollars over time.
