Job Description

Tom Douglas Restaurants

At Tom Douglas Restaurants, we share the goal of “creating deliciousness served with graciousness.” That’s part of our mission statement, and it means we strive to make our restaurants the best they can possibly be, with the most delicious food and the best service. For the “deliciousness” part, our kitchens make as much food as possible from scratch including our breads and sandwich buns, pizza dough, fresh pastas, sausages, cured meats, smoked fish and all of our desserts, pastries, and ice creams. Our chefs search out the best ingredients and buy local and organic whenever possible, and all our cooks strive to keep their skill and technique levels sky-high, in order to exceed the customers’ expectations. As for “graciousness,” that means our service goes above and beyond, wowing the customers. Our front of house staff works hard on food and menu knowledge and enjoys sharing that knowledge with the customer. Both front and back of house staff love to show our efforts!
