Lehrhaus: A Jewish Tavern & House of Learning, featuring creative takes on food from around the Jewish world, is looking for an experienced, passionate, and creative Sous Chef to join their opening team.
Cooks & Chefs of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, and no experience working with traditional Jewish flavors is needed. We just ask that you be passionate about storytelling through shared food experiences and eager to explore the incredibly diverse tastes, smells, and textures of the Jewish experience.
Day to day responsibilities include working alongside the Chef de Cuisine Noah Clickstein and Consulting Chef Michael Leviton to develop dishes, executing established recipes, maintaining tight food cost controls, ensuring compliance with cleanliness & code standards, and developing the BOH team.
The world’s first Jewish Tavern and House of Learning, Lehrhaus is an entirely new kind of gathering space: a welcoming, stylish, smart, sociable neighborhood watering hole that brings people together. We’re dedicated to sharing Jewish culture through the wide ranging flavors of the diaspora, culinary storytelling, and welcoming hospitality. Books, texts, and classes will be available to anyone interested in diving deeper into the traditional Jewish practice of text study.
Lehrhaus will be a space for people of all backgrounds to experience Judaism through food & drink, ancient texts, poetry, literature, lively conversation, and more. Lehrhaus will offer a kosher, pescatarian, and dairy (no meat other than fish, no shellfish) menu to be as inclusive as possible to all diets.
Why work at Lehrhaus?
Our hybrid not-for-profit model allows us to offer a great collaborative workplace. We want to build a better, gentler, more sustainable, and inclusive version of the restaurant industry. We offer manageable hours, competitive wages, great benefits, and room to advance. Following the rhythms of the Jewish calendar, the team will enjoy many Friday nights, Saturday days, and Jewish holidays off.
Compensation: $50,000 annual salary
