Job Details

Imperfecto, a recently Michelin Star restaurant awarded, is looking for talented full time Prep Cook to join our team. Initially, the candidate would start as a Prep Cook, with the goal of eventually growing to a Prep Lead position. 


  • Minimum of 4-5 years of culinary experience in a fine dining or upscale restaurant
  • An appetite for providing memorable hospitality 
  • Excellent emotional self-awareness under pressure
  • Gracious and pleasant demeanor with a positive attitude
The restaurant is located in DC's West End and features a fusion of Mediterranean and Latin American Cuisines. 

About Imperfecto

Imperfecto is the second restaurant of Enrique Limardo & Ezequiel Vázquez-Ger. Seven Reasons, our first restaurant, has been recognized as:

  • The Best New Restaurant in America by Esquire Magazine;
  • DC's Best Restaurant by the Washington Post Fall Dining Guide,
  • Among the 19 Best New Restaurants in North, Central and South America by New Worlder Magazine;
  • Among DC's 10 best restaurants by the New York Times,
  • And among DC's 19 Best Restaurants by Condé Nast Traveler
Imperfecto is inspired in the intersection between the Mediterranean & Latin American Cultures, and sustained in Enrique Limardo's bold culinary approach.

At Imperfecto we believe that human beings are not perfect. We are far from perfect. We are Imperfect. And it's imperfection what moves us forward and shows us how to improve.

The restaurant design is inspired by the Greek culture. The oldest definition of "perfection", goes back to Aristotle, who defined the concept in three: which is complete; which is so good that nothing of the kind could be better; which has attained its purpose.

At Imperfecto, we know that a restaurant space is not complete if it’s not filled with people; that we will try our best to maintain the highest levels of creativity, flavors and service; and that we will always pursue our purpose of bringing magical culinary experiences to our guests.

At Imperfecto we will seek perfection, but we will never achieve it. We don’t want to. We will be Imperfecto.
