Job Details

Holywater is seeking a Sous Chef with upscale, high-volume restaurant experience to join the Crew! An unparalleled opportunity to work closely with nationally-acclaimed culinary director, Kerry Heffernan, and execute a sustainable, award-winning menu.  The ideal candidate is skilled in prep, production, plating and labor management.  This is a hands on management role.

VENUE

Holywater

Holywater is an upscale cocktail bar in Tribeca from the team behind Grand Banks (and a handful of other nautically inspired ventures). The maritime-themed, underground space consists of three intimate rooms – a cocktail bar, a lounge, and a dining room — filled with artifacts collected over the years. The menu is concise, and everything on it is what you want. It leans on classic and forgotten cocktails, wines you can feel good about, easy-drinking beers, oysters and fruits de mer, an exceptional bistro burger, and gumbo on Monday nights. It's the bar you’ve always wanted to go to.

COMPANY

Crew

Crew is an innovative hospitality group that creates and operates experience focused restaurants and nautical ventures in New York and beyond.

With a focus on stunning locations, committed employees, engaged leadership, and appealing food and beverage offerings, Crew has created an outstanding work environment with leading industry pay and great opportunities for advancement.

Crew is built on a simple premise: creating experiences that we love and sharing them with the world. Whether it’s sipping cocktails on a historic schooner overlooking New York Harbor or enjoying sustainable oysters in a cozy New Orleans hideaway, we focus on making the places we wish existed.

Crew's award-winning restaurants include Grand Banks (Tribeca), Holywater (Tribeca), Pilot (Brooklyn Heights), High Tide (Dumbo), Drift In (West Village), Island Oyster, (Governors Island), and Seaworthy (New Orleans). And there are more on the way.

Crew’s flagship restaurant, Grand Banks, was named "The Absolute Best Waterfront Restaurant in New York" by New York Magazine, one of the “Best Waterfront Restaurants in the World” by CNN Travel, "Best Outdoor Dining in New York City" by The Village Voice, "Best Oyster Bar in New York City" by The New York Observer, and one of the "Three Best Bars in New York" by Conde Nast Traveler.

Seaworthy topped Eater's monthly Heatmap of New Orleans Restaurants for six months post opening, and was named "Seafood Restaurant of the Year" by New Orleans Magazine, and one of New Orleans "Five Best New Restaurants" by the Times Picayune.

Vogue has named Grand Banks, Island Oyster, and Pilot the top three places to drink outside in New York City; AM New York named Pilot the Best Boat Bar in New York City; and Island Oyster was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award for Restaurant Design.

Holywater, Crew’s most recent venture, spent it’s first six months on Eaters list of NYC’s Hottest New Cocktail bars and it’s launch was celebrated by The New York Times, Town & Country, Elle Decor, and more. https://crewny.com/
