Job Details

Affiliated with STARR Restaurants, El Presidente is a festive, neo-retro Mexican eatery anchored inside Washington, D.C’s newly-developed Signal House. A robust and creative menu highlights heirloom ingredients with a modern twist – a raw bar, guacamole with king crab, a la carte tacos and shareable plates like Tomahawk Ribeye and Whole Grilled Fish. Bright agave-forward tequila and mezcal cocktails dovetail with interconnected dining rooms, eclectic interiors and legendary south-of-the-border hospitality. Because at its heart, El Presidente is about the theater of going out.

The team is seeking Maitre’d candidates who are passionate about service and hospitality leadership. The ideal candidate has experience running the door of a high volume restaurant, and is well-versed in managing reservation system(s). Candidates should have strong communication skills, an affinity for making guests feel welcome, and possess both confidence and composure in working within a dynamic environment. The Maitre'd role requires quick-thinking and is perfect for a candidate who truly loves the theater of creating a great dining experience.

This position offers a comprehensive package including:

  • Competitive hourly rate
  • Medical, Dental, and Vision Benefits Coverage
  • Paid Vacation Time
  • Commuter Benefits
  • Referral Bonus Programs
  • Dining Discounts at over 25 Affiliated STARR Restaurants
  • Opportunity for Career Advancement and Professional Growth


Qualified candidates will have:

  • Weekend availability - great opportunity for those with a need for a "non-conventional" schedule
  • 2-3 years of experience in a Lead Host or Maitre'd role at a high-volume restaurant
  • Performing Arts and/or Theater background - a plus!
  • Experience with Resy reservations system is preferable
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
  • The ability to articulate detailed information to guests, think on one's feet, and maintain standards of professionalism and composure
