Job Details
**AM Position** Some evening shifts for events, but we are primarily open 10am-6pm, Shifts begin between 8am-10am

 We have an everchanging take-away menu which is updated weekly and our retail fridge & freezer are stocked with gourmet goods. We offer a carefully curated retail and grocery space and our open kitchen space is set up for private events from four guests to forty. Our standards are extremely high; our customers expect the quality, consistency, and level of service Chef Taryn curated during her decade of cooking for Oprah Winfrey.

We are looking for a unicorn. We’re growing like crazy and we need someone to help keep this ship working seamlessly. Are you a fabulous chef and also quick with a helpful smile for front of house? Are you easygoing yet neurotic in the best way? Are you kind? Can you keep your ego in check and work as a team? Are you excited to collaborate on menus, marketing ideas & keep the creative juices flowing?
This position will work closely alongside Chef Taryn, taking direction directly from her. Must be meticulous and able to supervise kitchen support staff, when applicable. 
 
We are NOT a restaurant. We are an open kitchen and you need to enjoy interracting with our customers and be able to step in and ring someone up when needed. Our staff is small, our hours flexible, and 80% are daytime. Weekends are our busiest days. Events are generally in the evening, usually 3-4 per month. We're looking for someone interested in all aspects of Kismet: Finding new, independently produced retail items to introduce to our customers, developing our own products, creating custom events, planning new classes and developing curriculum, choosing new cookbooks to sell, starting a cookbook club, etc.
Some pastry experience required (simple recipes), occasionally, serving is necessary.

Hours and days are flexible, and we will consider full or part-time committments.

Compensation: Hourly ($28.00 - $32.00) plus tips

The Kismet Table is a beautiful commercial space in Lincoln Park. A former cookbook shop, it has an incredible Fisher & Paykel show kitchen, beautiful, warm dining space. We offer an eclectic weekly menu of to-go provisions, and have small-batch gourmet retail & housewares- both made in-house and by other independent crafters from around the world. Most notably, we host bespoke dinner and cocktail parties for private groups. It is an Atelier...a workshop where we can dream, create, and experiment. Culinary Classes, Public Dining Events, and more coming soon!
