Position Title: Cook
Reports to: Store Manager
Position Type: Non-Exempt
Muse Paintbar is a venue that combines acrylic painting instruction with a beer/wine bar & small restaurant. We host 2.5 hour nightly events during which patrons will receive step-by-step instruction on a particular painting while socializing in a vibrant yet relaxing wine bar atmosphere. Check us out at www.MusePaintbar.com
Our food operation is fairly basic. We have a combination of tapas style appetizers that we heat in convection ovens and cold plates (like cheese platters, hummus plates) that require some cutting. We also want the food to have a good presentation. The time commitment for each session is 3-3.5 hours, and some days (mostly weekends) have double sessions. Given the changes in consumer movement and preferences with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, this general time commitment may change. For example, as individual cities and towns open, we anticipate that we will be required to offer smaller sessions more frequently throughout the course of a day.
Additionally, it is the cook’s responsibility to ensure food safety and the constant cleanliness of the kitchen. This requires a keen eye for detail and frequent wipe downs with disinfectant. After each shift, the cook will clean the kitchen so it’s in top shape for the next use. This includes disinfecting all surfaces, ensuring that all kitchen and service tools are clean and sterilized, food is stored properly and all floors are free from debris and disinfected.
