We’re looking for an organized, outgoing and quick-thinking host to run a fast-paced dining room and facilitate great experiences for our guests. Our small dining room balances reservations with space for walk-ins and a busy bar, and we need someone who can help manage the flow and communicate clearly with guests.
-We are looking for a truly guest-focused person with a natural spirit of hospitality and a genuine desire to be part of a strong team. Our 9 years of success are built on loyalty and guest relationships- we want someone who’ll welcome our regulars home and help us make repeat guests out of first-timers.
- Prime candidates will have at least 1 year hosting experience.
- Experience in a fine-dining environment is a big plus.
- A strong background in RESY or other reservation platforms is valuable.
- Weekend availability is a must; this includes Sundays, which at the Red Hen are a highlight of the week.
- We’re a fast-paced small dining room, and again we manage a hybrid reservation/walk-in system with an often long waitlist. It’s a lot to stay on top of, and we need hosts who can do it with poise. -Starting pay $19/hr (shifts are typically either 3:00-8:30 or 4:30-9:30)
What’s it like to work at the Red Hen?
-Located in a beautiful neighborhood space with huge windows, a flower garden and hardwood throughout
-Accessible from the Metro and multiple WMATA bus routes
- A busy service 7 days a week, with a loyal audience of regulars and friends
-A tight-knit team that takes pride in our work, loves to eat our own food, learns about Italian cooking and wine as well as great cocktails, and has fun at work
- A dedicated following of regular guests, who know the whole staff and are treated like family
