Sportello is seeking a part-time host to join the front of house team. A modern interpretation of the classic diner, Sportello (Italian for “counter service”) offers a menu of chef Barbara Lynch’s trattoria-inspired Italian dishes for lunch and dinner. The host conducts the mood and pace of the restaurant and is expected to strike a balance between maximizing guest accommodations and maintaining the quality and standard of Sportello’s guest experience. Prior to service, he/she will confirm reservations, plan the seating chart, and coordinate any special guest arrangements requested/needed for service. To succeed in this position, one must enjoy meeting new guests and nurturing existing relationships. Furthermore, one must recognize the importance of maintaining a positive, healthy, and communicative relationship with both management and the service staff. Prior host experience is preferred, but not required; they require flexibility with scheduling and weekend availability.
This is a part-time hourly position, with myriad opportunities for growth within their group. To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter care of General Manager Alex Nystedt at the email address below.
