We are an established luxury hotel in the heart of Santa Monica that has been family-owned for decades searching for an inspired Chef to join our team. Must have experience with seafood as we are on the beach and must be a coach and leader by hard work and consistency, not a louder voice. Turnover at our property is very low since we value our staff and take care of them emotionally and financially.
The ideal candidate will have experience in sushi and want to help elevate the perception of local seafood in the best dining city in the country. We want you to bring and cultivate your relationships with local purveyors at the Santa Monica farmers market only blocks away, as well as the local fishermen large and small just off our coast.
This is a tremendous opportunity for a Chef de Cuisine or Exec Sous looking to take their career to the next level, or an Exec that is looking for some stability and consistency in their career. Must have been at your previous place of employment for a minimum of 2 years and no more that 3 jobs in the previous 5 years. Must have a minimum of 7 years in a professional kitchen and 5 years in management.
Can you have fun and make amazing food at the same time? Are you so passionate about cuisine that you cook on your days off because you just can't help yourself? Would it be your dream to look out onto the dining room and see the ocean? On days when you have to work a double, can you imagine jumping into the ocean between meal periods to wash away lunch and prepare for dinner? This is certainly the dream job for someone out there and we want to meet you!
To indicate you read this entire job description, please title your e-mail with your favorite type of local seafood (i.e. "Spot Prawns" or "Santa Barbara Sea Urchin" or "California King Salmon").
Best of luck in your job search.
