Who we are:

101 Hospitality is a multi-concept restaurant group founded by Michelin star and award winning chef Matt Baker. Consisting of Gravitas (Michelin Star 2021), Michele’s and Baker’s Daughter, 101 Hospitality is looking for outstanding hospitality professionals to join our growing business as we expand our footprint in the Washington D.C Metropolitan Area.

The Role:

Hotel F&B Manager

Chef and founder Matt Baker is currently seeking a polished and professional Hotel Food & Beverage Manager to join our team. This will be a dual, front facing role with the responsibility of supporting both of our concepts located inside the Eaton Hotel in downtown D.C. We are seeking an individual who is passionate about hospitality to lead our front of house teams at both Michele’s and Baker’s Daughter.

This individual will be responsible for three days of management at Michele’s and two days of management at Baker’s Daughter Eaton. Responsibilities would also include weekend availability for running brunch service at Michele’s on the weekends.

Our Story:

Michele’s is a New American restaurant by Chef Matt Baker of Michelin-starred Gravitas. Located in The Eaton hotel, our cuisine is inspired by Baker’s family roots in France and influenced by local ingredients. Best described as “approachable fine dining”, our menu’s adapt to the seasons and the goal here is to surprise and delight our guests. Michele’s is named after Chef Matt Baker’s mother, who was born in New Orleans to French immigrants.

Baker’s Daughter is a market and café by Chef Matt Baker, located in The Eaton hotel. Baker’s Daughter offers a wide variety of espresso drinks and pastries, focusing on chef driven meals and baked goods.

Offerings cater to each meal of the day - pastries and egg dishes for breakfast, ready-made sandwiches and salads for lunch, and savory entrée options for dinner.

Whether it’s for dine-in or take out, our mission is to offer outstanding food and beverages in a clean, food-safe environment where employees thrive, and guests are completely satisfied.
