Area Executive Chef

Charleston, SC

Our Charleston properties are noted for their authentic and inviting character, each offering unmistakable guest experience. The Emeline and Ryder showcase the best that the historic city has to offer, marked with thoughtful surprises and a creatively curious nature.
We are searching for curious self-starters with a genuine interest in people. These hard-working individuals have always had a natural bend toward hospitality, no matter where they worked, because they’ve always seen themselves as part of something bigger.
This individual is passionate, and cares deeply, about the connections that can come from a great conversation and a shared meal. The primary role of this position is to align the culinary team to achieve the collective goal of excellence in all aspects of F&B at our two hotels in Charleston, Emeline and The Ryder Hotel. In addition to the creation of a restaurant's menu and identity, the Executive Chef will develop and mentor a unified team of hospitalitarians. From recipe development to execution, they take the lead and ensure that food is prepared properly, safely, and with a high degree of detail and excellence. You will be “the chief” and maintain complete control of the back of house, kitchen operations, and work closely with the F&B GM to ensure an impeccable guest experience.
