ABOUT SAGA

SAGA is a fine dining restaurant perched on the 63rd floor of 70 Pine Street, a landmark Art Deco tower in New York’s Financial District. It's the sophomore project from Chef James Kent, owner of Crown Shy on the ground floor of the same building.

At SAGA, we serve an 8-course tasting menu that highlights the best produce we can source from the Hudson Valley, with ideas and inspirations from our mentors, food memories from our childhoods, and the enormous breadth of cuisine we eat in New York City.

Our wine list showcases regions from the old and new world, encompassing traditional and modern styles of winemaking, with a focus on artisanal growers. 

One floor above SAGA is Overstory, a cocktail bar with a wraparound terrace. In addition to cocktails, beer and wine, Overstory now offers a selection of bar snacks and composed dishes. For a complete menu, visit overstory-nyc.com.

As a CAPTAIN at SAGA, you will be responsible for guiding and enhancing service from the initial greet through the guests’ departure, ensuring a thoughtful and engaged service and willingness for guests’ return. You will also be tasked with leading your team through a detail-focused service and creating calm in high-pressure situations. Your commitment to company standards and values is a must. 

SAGA believes in a ‘whole house’ mentality and we expect all departments (Pastry, Savory, Dining Room, and Facilities) to support and motivate each other to achieve our goal of guest satisfaction. As a Captain, you will interact with all of these departments regularly and should be able to communicate effectively and respectfully with your co workers.

This is a full time position. SAGA will be open 7 days a week. We are closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.

Our restaurants offer access to insurance enrollments (must maintain 25 hours per week), no cost life insurance, a short term disability policy, an Employee Assistance Program (with access to free mental health counseling), 40% dining discounts at group restaurants, referral bonuses, and more!
