Chef David LeFevre has carved a niche in Manhattan Beach with eclectic, chef driven restaurants focusing on soulful food, engaging service, hand crafted cocktails and boutique wine selections; Manhattan Beach Post in April 2011, Fishing with Dynamite in April 2013, and The Arthur J in June 2015. We continue to look for talented, highly passionate, experienced and motivated Chefs to recruit into our family.

A qualified Chef de Cuisine candidate will be a passionate industry leader & role model who is charismatic, self-motivated and thrives in a dynamically evolving environment. He/She must possess a high level of culinary mastery, a mentality of guardianship of all product in the Back of House, excellent communication & organizational skills, ability to multi-task & delegate effectively, drive financial results and possess a proven track record of mentoring crew & peers alike.

A qualified Chef de Cuisine candidate must possess 3 years of experience in a Chef de Cuisine/Executive Chef role in a chef driven/fine dining restaurant. The right candidate has high level experience leading their team through their team of Sous Chefs, demands excellence through high-detail coaching, builds discipleship by inspiring a team to reach seemingly impossible expectations, is unrelenting in the maintaining the quality and standards of the kitchen, puts his/her people first as it relates to mentorship and driving continual development, understands and can trouble shoot product cost challenges, adept at menu development and engineering, is relentless in mentoring his/her team of Chefs, and is obsessed with the tiniest details of anything that can elevate a dining experience for a Guest. This position must meet and exceed the expectations of a Michelin Starred Chef and be undeterred to practice and sharpen their craft.

This position requires a high level of attention to detail in order to succeed in an environment of extremely high standards – always with humility, respect and integrity. Candidates will be involved in all aspects of operations, mentorship of team members, service execution and even Guest interaction. There are opportunities for future advancement and the perfect candidate would be the individual completely open to guidance while still chomping at the bit to earn more.

If you are a executive level Chef who has a strong desire to be a mentor to other chefs, lead cooks who get excited about from-scratch-cooking and farmers market produce or prep cooks who are obsessed with working faster, cleaner and more precise… than you share our vision. If you're the type of Leader who can’t help but to cultivate that type of culture and refuses to accept anything less... we very much want to hear from you.
