Job Details
Restaurant Manager
Reports to Director of Food + Beverage; position is exempt.
 
WHO YOU ARE
 
You are excited and passionate about being a leader in the three-ring circus that is a restaurant.  You pride yourself in controlling chaos; and are adept at making each guest in your restaurant feel like they are the only person in the room.  While your mission is to provide an unmatched experience for your guests, you value the work and feedback of your associates as well.  You enjoy and excel in the fast-paced and often high-pressure environment to execute what is needed in exceeding our guest’s expectations and demonstrating the Aparium difference.  You are attentive, courteous, efficient and motivate others by inspiring confidence, respect, enthusiasm, and collaboration.
You are highly organized and can work in an often-unpredictable environment to meet deadlines, all while maintaining a positive and professional demeanor.
 
THE ROLE
 
The Restaurant Manager reports directly to the Director of Food + Beverage.  It is critical the person in this position is tactical and strategic; if you only prefer to “see the forest” and not “plant the trees,” then this is not a role for you.  All leaders of Aparium are required to get down and dirty to unearth existing needs and personally ensure what needs to be fixed is repaired.   We are a young company that is in hyper-growth, so having the ability to be a soldier is as critical as being a general.
 
As the Restaurant Manager, you will lead the Restaurant, Café, Bar, In-Room Dining Service F&B Teams to execute the daily breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner services in our restaurants.  The Restaurant Manager wears many different hats throughout the day – leading by example while spending much of your day engaging with your associates and guests before, during, and after services.  We encourage our leaders to inspire and challenge each other to be their best.  A large degree of self-motivation is needed to drive your department, while collaborating with the Culinary Team to execute your restaurant concept at a high level.  As a leader within Aparium Hotel Group, you will work with a phenomenal group of peers who insist that you are collaborative, humble, experienced, and open-minded – no egos are allowed.
