Steuben’s Food Service is one of three concepts from Secret Sauce F&B, the locally-owned, independent restaurant group based in Denver.
Our first restaurant, Vesta Dipping Grill, opened in 1997 in what was, at the time, the upcoming neighborhood of Lodo. Steuben’s first location followed, in 2006, in the then re-emerging Uptown area at 17th and Pearl. Steuben’s quickly gained great popularity with its regional American menu, award-wining classic cocktail program, and eye-catching design. Ace Eat Serve, a multi-use eatery consisting of Asian restaurant, ping-pong hall, event space, plus patio and bar, opened in 2012 next door to Steuben’s. In early 2016, Steuben’s opened its second location on Ralston Road in Arvada, CO., another neighborhood with great history that welcomes an evolving restaurant scene.
Steuben’s is seeking sous chef candidates for the Arvada location. This position has an opportunity for growth.
The ideal applicant has previous kitchen management experience as well as experience working professionally and productively in every station of a kitchen. These individuals should be clean, efficient, and detail-oriented. Strong leadership and communication skills and the ability to demonstrate consistent, positive energy is an absolute must.
