Above all: a love of sharing your craft, kindness, generosity of spirit and a good sense of humor are key.

We are a small restaurant with a growing reputation and exceptional potential. The sous chef is a linchpin role. You will work in close collaboration with the executive chef and owner, Erin Miller to develop hyper-seasonal, hyper-local dishes for our a la carte and tasting menus. Candidates must have a passion for exploring and learning. We place great emphasis on diving deep into traditional and contemporary technique, and the intersections between food, history and culture.

We offer a refreshingly non-traditional work environment, where all staff are trained across roles. We share in and celebrate the responsibility of serving our guests. All staff are paid a living wage with gratuities shared equally across the team.

The sous chef position offers competitive salary, paid vacation and sick leave, healthcare reimbursement, annual performance bonuses, and ample opportunity to learn and grow in your field.

● Up to date ServSafe certification
● Strong butchery, menu development and line cook skills
● Experience with ordering and inventory
● Professional attitude
