Vacancy for Restaurant Kitchen Manager - Restaurant Jobs in Garden City, NY

Restaurant Kitchen Manager – H103

Position NameHospitality Recruitment: Restaurant Kitchen Manager
LocationGarden City, NY
Salary Range$60000 - $70000
Client OverviewBack in 2001, the founder began to think about a concept where people could get big plates of rice and beans for reasonable prices. On June 24th, 2002, they opened its doors to a big crowd and great reviews. With a spirited sense of buen gusto, they present a portal to Cuba’s golden era, when life on the island paradise was a continuous party. Stepping through the doors, diners enter circa 1950s Havana, where Celia Cruz is singing her latest hit with the La Sonora Matancera band, where the flavorful food is gently spiced and comfortingly reminiscent of home (no matter where home might be!). The bartender has a refreshing mojito waiting and Ernest Hemingway could walk in any minute and belly up to the bar. An unmistakable celebration of Cuban culture, the food, the music and the people of Havana Central afford patrons a fanciful excursion to the fabled island – an excursion that, in keeping with Cuban tradition, embraces the whole family.

  • Karen Horton was a massive help for me during my recent job search!

    I had interviewed with Karen a couple years prior for a job I didn't get. Fast forward two years and I was having difficulty looking for a new opportunity. Karen personally reached out to me, even after two years remembering my name, my story, and exactly what kind of career I was looking for. Karen is incredibly friendly and extremely helpful! She offered to review my interviews after every step of the application process, giving me tips or simply giving me positive encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with a career change!

  • If you are looking for the right result, David Hotovy is your choice!

    Recruiting Pro is one way I would describe David Hotovy.  From beginning to end, David has a knack of building a relationship based on understanding his client's needs and goals.  He is personable and has a way about him that really made me feel like he cared about my career ambitions.  He knows the industry and presents himself as a Career Coach that truly has the client first.  David was always prompt with updates and even if there was nothing new to report, he would check in.  Looking for that next career can be a lonely space at times and with David I always felt that I was never in this by myself.  If you are looking for the right result, David is your choice.
    Thank you!
