Now Hiring – Dino’s Grotto and Macon Bistro

1914 9th Street, NW

Thanks to a reader for sending a couple updates on some coming soon spots – Dino’s Grotto is now hiring for their spot on 9th Street:

“Dino’s Grotto Comes to Shaw! Dino’s Grotto is opening soon. We support local and artisan food producers, sustainable production and seasonality. We are looking for floor staff including hosts and waiters/runners. We would rather train those with the right attitude than hire just for experience.

Our service style is team oriented, and waiters will also have runner shifts. You will need to learn a lot as our ingredients and recipes are very particular. This is not the palce for someone who goes by a fixed script or is used to corporate blandness and procedures. We want your personality to shine thru and be used to tell our story. We will be using the Breadcurm {I Pad based} POS system and we are active on social media.

We are a passionate restaurant that supports local farms and artisan production. Our menu changes weekly or more depending on the availability of local ingredients. We are hyper seasonal. Our cocktail program will reflect this: small producer, craft spirits will be combined with house made syrups, infusions, shrubs, tinctures and bitters in a weekly changing cocktail list. Our tap program will feature local brews and Italian boutique breweries. We will have great Barolos, Brunellos, Amarones & wines from Mount Eden and Littorai etc available by the glass on a wine keeper and a coravin.

If this is you, we need to talk. Send us your resume with a cover letter telling us why we should pick you! If you are local to Shaw, even better!”
