Sous Chef - Hewing Hotel and Tullibee Restaurant

Kitchen/Culinary Minneapolis, Minnesota

Position at Hewing Hotel

Hewing Hotel and Tullibee Restaurant is looking for a Sous Chef to join the Kitchen Management Team in overseeing the scheduling, menu development, organization and overall management of Tullibee Restaurant, Banquets, Bar/Lounge and In-Room Dining.

The culinary experience is driven by our brand pillar of translocal hospitality. Inspired by our host cities, we cultivate loyal, local followings by delivering communal experiences unique to each location. Our hotels, restaurants, and bars are authentic crossroads where travelers and locals linger in each other’s company creating a remarkable confluence of cultural color. These serendipitous meetings build dynamic moments rife with energy and excitement. It’s this vitality that fosters long-term relevance and success.

Hewing Hotel takes a sustainable approach to food and beverage - sourcing from and collaborating with regional farmers and purveyors, working with local breweries, coffee roasters and spirit makers, and connecting the staff and guest with the source as much as possible. The menu will be heavily driven by seasonality.  Further, the wood-burning grill and oven will greatly influence the menu offerings – hearty vegetables and sharable fish and meat offerings. Game and other offal will be an integral part of the offering with a rotating market driven “chalk board” of off cuts and other nightly offerings. The hotel will also feature a destination rooftop drinking and dining experience.
