Mujō, an omakase-style modern edomae sushi restaurant, is seeking an experienced Sushi Chef to join our team. We are a small restaurant with 15 seats, open for dinner only. We are not a high-volume maki/sushi roll restaurant so the ideal candidate must be familiar with proper nigiri technique. Potential candidates must be competent with various aspects of fish butchery, particularly as applied to Japanese fish such as kohada, sanma, sayori, etc.

Due to the intimate nature of our restaurant the Sushi Chef must work in a particularly clean and organized manner. You will be directly interacting and serving guests at the counter so you will need to present a polished and professional demeanor and image at all times.

This is a great opportunity to learn traditional edomae sushi in a professional kitchen from chefs with a wide variety of experience working in Michelin-star kitchens. Some upscale sushi experience is important for this position but we are willing to train an apprentice with the right attitude and drive.

This is a full time position with services 5 days a week. The compensation for this position is hourly plus tips and benefits.
