Company: Chambers
Location: New York
Posted on: July 9, 2024

Job Description:

At Chambers, we are seeking true hospitalitarians who thrive in an environment that promotes growth and excellence.

  • The position available is a daytime position, full-time, 5 days a week
  • Strong preference will be given to candidates with demonstrable experience with pastry and baking
  • See full description belowChambers opened in June 2022, was added to the Michelin Guide the same year and was the recipient of a glowing NY Times Review (which you should read).

    The entire concept at Chambers has been built around the elimination of the pressure-cooker-environment restaurants are known for. To achieve this, we have limited the scope of our operation. The restaurant will operate 5 days a week, with the same small team day in and day out. Tuesday - Saturday from Labor Day - Memorial Day; Monday - Friday for the Summer with a paid Summer holiday for all. The restaurant opens at 5:30pm daily, with the last seating at 9:30pm or 10pm depending on the day. This is a full time position.

    As a part of this mission, Chambers maintains a small, regularly-changing, market-driven menu of New American Cuisine. The limited menu means limited prep, which means a more reasonable workday. It is extremely rare for any member of the Culinary Team to work over 45 hours per week.

    Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
    • Arriving on time, as scheduled, every day
    • Maintaining the restaurant's bread program, baking for the current day, and preparing for the next
    • Dessert menu research, development, and execution
    • Executing menu items from start to finish. This includes but is not limited to preparation of ingredients, butchery of proteins, cooking and plating of menu items, as well as contributing family meal

    • Maintaining cleanliness of any kitchen work areas, including and not limited to refrigeration, cooking equipment, and prep areas
    • Participate in deep cleaning of kitchen work areas, including and not limited to refrigeration, cooking equipment, and prep areas
    • Support other team members and foster a positive work environment

      The hourly wage for this position will be $25/hour. Comprehensive Health, Dental and Vision benefits are available, as is a pre-tax transit benefit program among other extensive voluntary benefits programs that are competitive with those offered by large restaurant groups.
