Mockingbird Hill is a Sherry bar influenced by the small Sherry bars in Madrid and the south of Spain. We're Spanish influenced but not to a fault. Mockingbird Hill is our own invention. We received two stars with a toaster oven from the Washington Post and, otherwise, have received national recognition for our innovative beverage program. Now we need a chef to complete the other half. Our food program currently revolves around locally cured-meats (some Spanish too) and small plates' small but mighty. We love local purveyors and seasonal food.
We're looking for a full-time chef who can oversee kitchen operations in a small prep kitchen; order and prepare a variety of food for meal services; work shifts during meal services, executing composed dishes; prepare monthly inventory and participate in weekly manager meetings; stock food items and rotate inventory; maintain a clean work environment and otherwise oversee all duties pertaining to the operation of the kitchen. Chefs should have experience working in kitchens as a lead line cook or sous chef, a flexible schedule and be able to lift 50 lbs. But, mostly, we just want someone who loves cured meats and local proteins and produce and can turn them into a great food program.
We're currently open for service at night but are adding a daytime program with coffee and sandwiches.
