Job Details
Join the team at Lutèce!

Lutèce is a service-driven neo bistro located in Georgetown, and is a collaboration between family-owned restaurateurs, The Popal Group, and award-winning chefs Isabel Coss and Matt Conroy. We focus on natural wines and modern french food that is reflective of the seasons. We are a small restaurant, and aim to be the 'neighborhood' place that is sought out by locals and world travelers alike. 

At Lutèce, we believe that great food starts with great people. We’re a close-knit team that values creativity, collaboration, good food, and growing together. We’re on the hunt for a talented Chef de Cuisine to join our family and help us create an unforgettable dining experience for our guests.

Your Role:

As our CDC, you’ll be the right hand to our Executive Chefs, helping to manage the kitchen operations, leading our team, and ensuring that every dish that leaves the kitchen is perfect.

What We Offer:

  • Competitive Salary: We believe in rewarding hard work and talent.
  • Supportive Environment: The Popal Group is family-owned, and we take that mentality into everything we do.
  • Creative Freedom: Bring your ideas to the table and make your mark on our menu.
  • Growth Opportunities: We’re committed to helping our team members grow their careers.
  • Work-Life Balance: We understand the importance of time outside of the kitchen. We’re only open five days a week, so everyone has two days off to rest!
  • Subsidized Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance
  • Paid Time Off: We believe in time off to recharge.
  • Retirement: We offer a 401(k) program with company matching after one year of employment.
  • Commuter Benefits: Discounted rides on apps and pre-tax public transportation cards.
  • Dining Discounts: Enjoy discounts at all of our restaurants across the city: Lutèce, Lapis, Lapop, and Pascual.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting in menu planning and development.
  • Overseeing kitchen staff and ensuring smooth operations.
  • Controlling labor and food costs
  • Mentoring and developing kitchen staff
  • Maintaining high standards of food quality and presentation.
  • Managing inventory and ordering supplies.
  • Ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Proven experience as a CDC, Executive Sous Chef or similar role.
  • 3+ years of experience working in restaurant kitchens.
  • Passion for food and a desire to create exceptional dining experiences.
  • Strong leadership skills and the ability to inspire your team.
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and in a fast-paced environment.

    If you’re ready to bring your culinary skills to a place where you can truly shine, we’d love to hear from you. Apply today and join the Lutèce team!
