Job Description

Side Street Kitchen is the newest restaurant in Point Reyes Station. We opened in August 2017 -- two years ago already -- and we're having a a lot of fun as well as garnering fantastic reviews from our guests and media alike. Looking for part-time? Hoping to find a long-term job and settle in? Send us an email or give a call; we look forward to hearing from you.

We welcome applicants who are enthusiastic and ready to learn. Prior experience is great but we are willing to teach if you have a positive attitude. Weekend availability is a must; preferably 4-5 shifts per week.

We are presently hiring for the following positions:

-CASHIER

This is the "lead-server" position in our restaurant. You are responsible for greeting guests upon arrival; knowing the menu thoroughly for information and salesmanship; taking orders at the counter; accurately recording the orders (we use Square) for the kitchen; opening or closing duties (depending on the shift); assisting with running, bussing, sidework and other typical duties. We serve fresh, local and delicious food; our menu is imaginative - product you can really get behind! (Plus shift meals are a delight).

- FOOD RUNNER

This is the "other half" of the typical server duties: preparing beverages; delivering orders; providing professional, hospitable follow-up service; bussing tables; typical cleaning/sidework duties.

The cashier, food-runner and manager-on-duty work together to execute the warm, professional and friendly service that Side Street Kitchen is committed to providing. The restaurant space is small and intimate and our staff is responsible for upholding our standards of excellence.

We invite you to be a part of a successful team of restaurant professionals. Work in a new, completely remodeled venue (formerly the Pine Cone Diner) that serves high quality food at a quick pace in a bright, clean and creative space. The service style is "fast-casual" (order at the counter) with extra-added follow-up service and professionalism. We offer a menu of local and heritage meats accompanied by a variety of local produce, for dine-in and take-out. Hours of operation are 11am-8pm, 7 days per week. (11am-7pm in winter).

Applicants should have excellent customer service aptitude which includes friendly personality; attention to detail; ability to work clean and efficiently; a quick, energetic demeanor; willingness to work as a true "team" and cross-train in multiple positions; availability on nights, weekends and holidays. (Some part-time options can be explored but holidays are a must. That said, we do close the restaurant for Thanksgiving and Christmas.) A familiarity with the Point Reyes area is preferred but not required.

We are so excited to have opened this family-friendly restaurant in a beautiful area and are looking forward to continuing to build our staff with the best and brightest.

Some experience in hospitality or retail is preferred but we are perfectly willing to train the right individual with a great attitude.

Benefits include: Access to Kaiser medical insurance and 401(k) with employer matching funds upon qualification/wait period.

Please reply with your resume, name and phone number. We prefer an introductory cover note and please include your resume in the body of your email (attachments may not be opened). If you don't hear from us, feel free to give a call or stop by if you're in the neighborhood - sometimes Craigslist applications are lost in SPAM despite our best efforts.

Ask Sheryl Cahill why she opened Side Street Kitchen and the seasoned restaurateur says, "I saw an opportunity to start from scratch; not just in cooking, but with the whole concept, from renovation to design to culture and, of course, cuisine." Inspired by her favorite dishes from growing up in Northern California and a formative trip she took to Paris, Sheryl and Chef Aaron have developed a menu that recreates these memories.

In an homage to the past, Sheryl has retained the restaurant's iconic 1950's-era counter and stools. But otherwise the space - evolving from Mike's Truck Stop to Joe's Diner and The Pine Cone Diner - has been extensively remodeled to suit the needs of patrons. The cuisine is centered around a modern rotisserie and smoker, featuring slow-cooked meats and organic vegetables, including slow-roasted chicken, smoked tri-tip and cold-smoked seafood.
