Position NameHospitality Recruitment: Restaurant Executive Chef - Quick Casual
LocationPlaya Vista, CA
Salary Range$78000 - $82000
Client OverviewTheir Secret? There isn’t one. This is like no other restaurant—not because they know something other restaurants don’t, but because they're willing to do what others won’t. They take the time to make everything from scratch in house every day. They spend more to source the finest sustainably sourced ingredients. They plan their menus around the seasons to ensure every dish is at its freshest, and stand behind every meal we serve. They do all of these things, and more, not because it’s efficient or easy. They do them because it’s right, and because they're passionate about the partnerships they form, the guests they serve and the food they make from scratch each day. They prepare every meal for each of their guests like they would for there own family, putting careful thought into what every ingredient brings to each dish. A little spice. A bit of crunch. An antioxidant kick. They all come together to form delicious meals that are better for our bodies, our spirit and our environment. And that makes for a better world. If you’re looking for a restaurant that satisfies your soul as well as your appetite, they're here for you. In California. In D.C. And, soon, in select cities across America. They believe you shouldn’t have to choose between a delicious meal and a fast one, or between eating well and staying within budget. They created a place where high-quality meals are served fast at prices that won’t break the bank, all in a setting where you can see your food being prepared and have a voice in customizing it to your individual tastes. "Scratch-made means everything.” Look into our open kitchen, and what do you see? Our culinary team chopping, braising, sautéing and making every meal from scratch every single day. From an entire case of scratch-made desserts to little things like mayonnaise and salad dressings, they're committed to making everything in house. “They want people to sit in their restaurant and feel like it’s an extension of their own kitchen.” If you care about food, you probably cook at home. And when you do, you use quality ingredients, prepare them simply to accent their natural flavors and enjoy them casually and comfortably. You’ll find the same thing here, only it’ll be our chefs doing the cooking and our Team doing the cleaning, so you’re free to just kick back and relax in your home (and kitchen) away from home
