Job Details

Awarded 1 Michelin Star in the 2022 & 2023 California Guide, Osito opened in late December 2021, Chef Stowaway’s inaugural restaurant. It is San Francisco’s only 100 percent live fire, fine dining experience, located in the heart of the Mission District. More than just a restaurant, Osito is a community of makers, farmers and supporters who have brought the Osito concept to life in the middle of a global pandemic with a philosophy to create an experience that is special and memorable, as well as accessible and inviting. The Osito experience is intimate – a place where strangers become friends in a warm setting, with a menu comprised of the most beautiful ingredients of the day. The beverage program is rounded out by an extensive wine selection with a focus on natural and biodynamic production, with carefully selected sakes, ciders and beers. The menu is inspired by collective memories and moments of nostalgia from Seth's past growing up in south Texas and his experience cooking on the California coast.

We are seeking spirited individuals who thrive in an environment that is progressive and continuous with education in areas of service, food, and wine.  We lead with positive reinforcement and encourage each individual to create their own pathways to personal growth, with the support and guidance of our team.  We celebrate diversity, authenticity, and individuality, and are dedicated to creating a culture that is inclusive of all employees. We highly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQ + to apply. Please send us your resume and cover letter to be considered. Thank you!
