Eventide is seeking a Pastry chef and Pastry assistant to head up our fabulous 2 person pastry team. The Pastry Chef position is ideally suited for a Pastry Cook or assistant that is ready to step into a starring role. The pastry department at Eventide is responsible for bread, dining room dessert and sunday brunch production. It is a chance to learn how to run a small department and spread your wings. Must have an eye for detail and your own ideas about pastry and also be willing to listen to direction. The pastry assistant position is strictly production and some assembly. Must be able to read and follow recipies and must be able to independently think and work unsupervised. This is not a learning position. You must have knowledge of breads, pastries, ice creams/sorbets and other various pastry related things. I am also looking for a pm line cook. Speaking spanish is a plus but not necessary. Please be professional and willing to work and learn. If you are someone that fits the descriptions above please pm me your resume. If you think you are someone who fits the descriptions above but have major emotional issues, a drug problem, are an alcoholic or are someone who has problems with punctuality, you will not fit in here just so you know, so don't send me your resume, you'll just be wasting your time and mine. The restaurant is located near the Clarendon metro at 3165 Wilson Blvd in Clarendon Virginia. Look it up on Google maps or whatever way you get directions. Consider that the very first part of the interview. The second part will be to see if you're smart enough to find the back door. Gunther Seeger in Atlanta always considered that a test for cooks. We never come in the front door. We provide the illusion for the guest, to come in the front door would destroy that illusion.
Perhaps check out Fork on Market- 3rd and Market - a convivial bistro open 7 days a week(Old City- also where Amada is on Chestnust so you just can't go wrong in the area). A great location to grab a drink too- 2nd St.
I know of a top-tier pastry chef who is looking for work right now. Not full-time restaurant work, but working with chefs and/or pastry chefs to improve their program, or to work with individual events. Please contact me, and I will make the appropriate links. firstname.lastname@example.org
I had a terrific meal a few weeks ago at Range [Closed Jan 1, 2017], a new restaurant in the Mission. My friends and I shared a few starters, which I followed with spinach soup instead of a salad. This was a nice surprise; the soup didn't lend any of that dry-mouth feel that I sometimes get from spinach, even though, according to the server, it was completely vegan except for the dollop of cream in the middle. Nice, tasty, and interesting, even for a meat-lover. For a main, I usually don't order the chicken, but my dining companions had ordered every other dish I was interested in, and the chicken got breathless raves, so I said what the heck. And it was phenomenal. The meat and its sides had innovative but not overpowering flavors and were cooked perfectly. So were all the other dishes at the table (which I of course got tastes of). Finally, after a tremendous chocolate souffle and a tasty alcohol+coffee concoction I had to throw in the towel and call it a night. Incidentally, not only was the food amazing, our server was just great--friendly, knowledgeable on the food, and extremely well-versed on the wine. And to top it all off, the entree prices ranged from $16-20, appetizers $6-13. The San Franciscans at the table all commented that the place could have easily tacked on $4-6 an entree without changing a thing, and it'd still be a deal. And who knows--maybe they will in a few weeks. But my friends are right: that restaurant would still be a find. I highly recommend giving it a go before everyone else discovers it! (or even after!)
