Sous Chef Job Description

The Whitby Hotel, (which received three Michelin Keys) midtown's busy and highly rated restaurant is looking for an energetic, dedicated, and passionate sous chef to help lead an equally dedicated and passionate team of professionals. As a ‘hands-on’ sous, your role would be to help run the daily kitchen operations (breakfast/lunch/dinner) and maintain the safe, respectful, and professional environment that we have created. Small production farms, locally sourced products, and modern French techniques spearhead the cuisine served at this restaurant.  

A well-rounded applicant with a firm understanding of cuisine is needed to balance leading a team of professionals while having a working knowledge of computer programs such as Word and Excel. The ability to pivot from one skill set to the other is a skill set in itself. One minute you could be at the pass calling tickets, then helping to prep a party, and then pivot to pick up the clipboard and do some ordering. All jobs are important and must be prioritized accordingly.

  • You know how to support your head chef and the Front of House managers
  • You must have a working knowledge of controlling cost, spotting opportunities + proactively dealing with these to maximize profitability
  • You must have a Health Department protection certificate and a thorough knowledge of health and safety standards

What we offer:
