Job Details
hi! we're middle brow. we make quite a large number of things nearly expertly: we make beer. we make natural wine. we make pizza. we make sourdough bread. we make donuts. we make ice cream. (but we don't sell it. yet.)

sure: we make lots of things. principally for the purpose, though, of making people happy. and that's where you'd come in.

higher-level operational management, product development and maintenance and front-line support are absolutely necessary to the end goal of impeccable products and hospitality. 

we're looking to fill a role in the upper management of the kitchen (we may call this position Kitchen Operations Manager, or Executive Chef; tbd). we see kitchen management as product-focused principally. products aren't just developed. they're maintained. by constant attention, sure. but by constant interaction and poking and prodding. by supporting front line managers and staff in preparing and producing those products. sometimes this means stretching dough all night, as any kitchen manager knows. but mostly this means designing and maintaining efficient and effective systems. ... by the time service starts, it's about keeping the ship afloat and steaming toward the light. and making sure every customer experience is a positive one.

but this all sounds boring! this past year we work'd w tamar adler, the kitchen shrink, on a sourdough starter giveaway party! we threw a block party that saw 4000 people attend, and included pizza collaborations w Le Bouchon, Birrieria Zaragoza and Nine Bar! we hosted 9 off-soif events in 5 days! we worked the green city market bbq and other farmers markets! we hosted live, improvised music every sunday night by chicago legends like bill mackay, dan bitney, leroy bach and macie stewart! we remodeled our whole bar and kitchen! we launched our patio herb garden to serve our cocktail program! we took staff for almost all of september and october to pick wine grapes in michigan and to emergency-sort them before pressing them into natural wine in our alley! ... and we've got more fun coming: a book release party w a secret pizza legend from the west coast. a bigger block party and wine harvest than ever before. a roving wood-fired oven.

we hate to talk out of turn. but this place can be a whole place and time. and we're looking for someone who wants to keep it going that way.

given the size of our patio, our restaurant does tremendous volume in the summer months. but is quite relaxed in the other 6 months of the year.

we pay competitively. our management team tends to clock fewer than 50 hours per week. we ensure any role in the broader gm team includes occasional breaks from weekend work. quality of work and quality of life are very important to us.
