What If Syndicate Team Principles  

We are Generous
We always give more than we receive, and we never take advantage of a guest. We ensure that the value that a guest receives will always exceed what they pay. 

We are Professional
We do our work exceptionally, with skill and talent born from decades of hospitality experience. Our staff has more food, wine, and cocktail knowledge than any other restaurant. 

We Have Fun
We love what we do, we laugh a lot, and we never take ourselves too seriously. Fun is contagious- we know if we’re having fun, our guests will too. 

We Fail Fast 
As we strive to be the best, we will make mistakes.  It is okay to screw up as long as you learn, adjust, and get better.  Don’t wait…fail fast and move on. 

We Get Stuff Done
We do what it takes to get the job done, period. Those that are promoted gain more responsibility and manage more people, they all have one common trait – they get stuff done.
