Tasting Counter

Join Our Team

TASTING COUNTER… because working in a restaurant should be part of your life, not consume it!

As a growing company, we continually seek team members who are passionate about food, share our vision for innovation, and strive to provide guests with a remarkable dining experience.

Flexibility is built into the restaurant to maximize potential of all staff. With all-inclusive tickets instead of reservations, there is no tipping, which allows for competitive hourly rates beyond typical restaurant wages. With no front and back-of-house distinction, constant cross-training creates seamless lateral movement within the restaurant, keeping things interesting and fresh!
