Job Details

Now Hiring all FOH positions. This neighborhood bakery and pizzeria debuted in winter 2011, and it’s also the bread-baking hub for our group.  Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, pop in early for one of Head Baker Andrea Shirey’s bagels, rustic tarts or a fresh loaf of bread to-go.  Later in the day, dig into our classic and seasonal wood-fired pizzas, handmade pastas, farmers’ market vegetable dishes and Italian-inspired proteins by Chef de Cuisine Dean Boswell and team.  Don’t forget the Garlic Knot—it’s a local favorite!
