Westerly Canteen

Posted 20 days ago

Part Time
Hudson Valley / Upstate NY
Wassaic, Amenia
$17-$20/hr (commensurate with experience) plus tips

We are seeking a server to join our team Friday through Sunday starting immediately through September. We are collaborative, mostly women, mostly queer team. We welcome any kind hearted, hard working individual into the fold.

All front of house must be willing and able to traverse distances across the property during the course of a shift. We are a unique set up in which the dish area, airstream, patio, and orchard are spaced out. Servers will be required to move between these spaces regularly - from carrying plates and water outside for set up to clearing back into the dish area to moving between the Canteen window and their tables.

All servers are expected to be the key representatives of Westerly’s guest experience, which is prioritized at every level. We aim for earnest, caring, welcoming and genuine hospitality. We want our guests to feel cared for without providing too much of a heavy hand aka we never want an air of pretension in the service we provide. Thus servers are expected to treat all guests with attentive care and translate our farm sourced menus into a full wholesome experience for all patrons.

About Us

Westerly Canteen is a *sort of* restaurant uniquely housed in a renovated 1971 Airstream. We serve dinner Thursday through Sunday and lunch on the weekends. We offer table service by night and window service by day. In that regard, we operate much like a restaurant as you might know it- with guests and cooks and servers, with menus and checks and dishes presented on our favorite ceramic plates. However, we aim to break down the literal and imaginary walls between service and dining and between where our food is grown, prepared and then served.

Westerly is rooted in the tradition of agritourism so we activate outdoor agricultural spaces and transform them into full dining experiences. Our service style aims to be playful, earnest, and caring to evoke a feeling of caretaking without pretention. We are lucky to partner with Tenmile Distillery and utilize their orchard and dining patio as our freeform restaurant.

At Tenmile Distillery, in Wassaic we prep out of their commercial kitchen, where we conduct all of our dishwashing and side work and then we treat the Airstream as our line and service kitchen. It is a unique and modular alternative that does require a good bit of walking between spaces, yet allows us to enjoy the best of the Hudson Valley landscape.
