Executive Chef Opportunity

Chef Andrew Labath will be moving on in his career this fall. To replace Andrew, LPN is seeking an executive chef to build on the current success of its culinary program. This candidate must have a passion and dedication to the food industry, plus a desire for consistent guest satisfaction that exceeds our members and guests’ expectations.

This is a working chef position that is hands-on, but also responsible for food and labor benchmarks. A degree in culinary arts or related field is highly preferred, plus a minimum of two years’ experience as an executive chef or sous chef also preferred.
