After a hot dog and hamburger binge, the latter part of this week is devoted to cuisine of a higher sort, or a higher purpose.
1. Arguments are no doubt common in most restaurant kitchens, but this job includes conflict of an entirely different kind. Conflict Kitchen, a take-out restaurant in Pittsburgh, serves food from countries with which the United States is in conflict. Period. Current iteration is Iranian cuisine; next up is Afghanistan, North Korea and Venezuela. If you can serve up discussion points for international peace as well as you can whip up a Reina Pepeada, click here.
2. Danny Meyer’s Maialino in NYC seeks line cooks with a “passion and respect for food.” The Roman-style trattoria serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Love, love, love the kitchen.
3. Bistro Jeanty in Yountville (Napa Valley) needs a chef de cuisine and they are VERY specific about what they don’t want. Independent fine dining experience only–no hotel, corporate or country club chefs need apply. Deep knowledge of French cuisine essential. Speak French? Even better.
