Position at Hewing Hotel

Aparium Hotel Group LLC is looking for a Restaurant General Manager to lead Tullibee Restaurant at Hewing Hotel located in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis.

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. 

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.
