Job Details

Del Posto is offering a very rare opportunity to join its team in its most senior service position - Captain. Due to some exciting internal promotions within Del Posto and the Batali Bastianich Hospitality Group we have a captain's position that has unexpectedly become available. Typically this position would only be filled following a strict policy of internal promotion through our service training program.

This position is not an easy one to master, and therefore we are seeking only those who have worked as a Captain in similar restaurants to Del Posto. Captains should be dynamic in their ability to vary service style, and approach based on guest needs. They must have a mastery of cooking techniques, wine pairings, food descriptions, and ideally have a background with Italian cuisine, culture, and wines. A successful Captain at Del Posto has a passion for self improvement, enjoys working as part of a large team, and is endlessly driven to give their guests the best dining experience they have ever had.

This is not an easy position to walk into, and training will be extensive and thorough - expect to be in training for 3 to 4 weeks. Performance success training will be measured with both written and verbal testing throughout your training period.

This is a unique opportunity to join a truly service driven dining room and work from a team of experienced and passionate service professionals.

Del Posto is owned by Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Lidia Bastianich, Del Posto is the only Italian restaurant in the city to achieve a 4 Star rating from the NY Times in the past 40 years. We are also proud members of Relais & Chateaux, have the 5 star award from Forbes, and 5 diamonds from AAA. We are proud of these designations and seek team mates who understand the responsibility it entails to carry them. Of note among our designations was our 2013 James Beard Award for Outstanding Service.

Requirements:

This is a full time position, lunch and dinner shifts are required. Please forward resumes that are copied and pasted into the body of your email - attachments will be politely ignored. Also, please be sure to include a letter explaining why you should be considered for this very special program.

Compensation:

As part of the service team you will be compensated with tips and an hourly rate. Del Posto offers medical and dental healthcare benefits after 60 days of employment and a 401K plan and paid vacation time are offered after 1 year of employment. Furthermore, Del Posto provides its employees with many opportunities for continuing education- including beverage tastings/classes and educational seminars.
