While we are all still waiting for more details on Sea Salt, the restaurant currently under construction at 4915 Rainier (the former Angie’s location), a new posting on Craigslist and Poached (a site for those in the food industry) provides a few more hints as to what’s coming to the neighborhood:
Sea Salt, a new modern American seafood restaurant and raw bar opening this spring in the heart of Columbia City, is seeking a Chef de Cuisine. This position offers a unique opportunity to help launch an exciting new addition to the South Seattle culinary scene.
The opening day menu for Sea Salt has been developed by a local consulting chef, and it will be the job of the Chef de Cuisine to see that the kitchen staff can consistently reproduce those dishes at a high level. Once the restaurant is open and running smoothly the Chef de Cuisine will assume some collaborative creative control.
Applicants to this position should possess excellent communication skills, and be capable of managing a competent and cohesive crew, as well as controlling food and labor costs, while maintaining inventory. We want to foster a positive, fun working environment, and we’re looking for an open minded individual who can lead by example and get the best out of their team. Must have three years experience as a Chef or Sous Chef. As we are a seafood restaurant and raw bar, experience with and interest in local seafood is essential.
This is a full-time, salaried position with quarterly bonus opportunities. Pay will depend upon experience.
