Position NameHospitality Recruitment: Restaurant Sous Chef - Quick Casual
LocationLa Jolla, CA
Salary Range$63000 - $67000
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

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,
