Sous Chef

Chicago, USA


Job Description

Maple & Ash is an innovative take on the traditional steakhouse—mixing modern aesthetic with authentic service to deliver classic wood- fired dishes. With a menu crafted by award winning Chef Danny Grant and a 5,000 bottle wine program named one of “America’s Best” by Wine Enthusiast, Maple & Ash finds a way to celebrate every moment. It’s more than just a restaurant, it’s an experience.


In everything we do, there are four principles that we live by:

  • Generous - We always give more than we receive and we never take advantage of a guest. The value that a guest receives always exceeds what they pay.

  • Professional - We do our work exceptionally, with skill and talent born from decades of hospitality experience. Our staff has more food, wine, and cocktail knowledge than any other restaurant.

  • Fun - We love what we do, we laugh a lot, and we never take ourselves too seriously. Having fun is a critical component to success at an intense and complex restaurant such as Maple & Ash.

  • Fail Fast - As we strive to be the best, we will make mistakes. It is ok to screw up as long as you learn, adjust, and get better. Don’t wait… fail fast and move on.
