Marcus Samuelsson’s Merkato 55 is opening tomorrow, but they still need hosts and reservationists, and line/pastry cooks.

Is coffee the final step in gentrification? Williamsburg just got El Beit, and another espresso bar is supposed to open on Grand Street any day now. They are looking for a barista.

Whole Foods has amusingly literal names for their “Team Members”. The Bowery store is looking for cake decorators and meat cutters.

The new Grom Gelato location is getting set for a March opening, and they need full-time gelato producers, part-time scoopers, and shift supervisors. The new store will be located at 233 Bleeker Street, at Carmine.

The people behind Smith & Vine and Stinky Bklyn are opening a new “wine and cheese bar” on Smith Street. They’re staffing up as we speak.
