Verjus is an exciting new concept from Michael and Lindsay Tusk owners of Quince and Cotogna Restaurant. Verjus seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial minded General Manager.
Opening January 2019, Verjus is a Cave Manger; an unfamiliar concept in the landscape of the American food and beverage industry but one that has been popularized over the last 30 years throughout the Parisian dining scene. The Cave Manger merges both the traditional Bar Vin and the cave or wine merchants. Born out of archaic Parisian licensing laws that forbade wine retailers to open and serve bottles of wine in their own stores without offering food to patrons these wine bars / shops now offer some of the most exciting drinking and dining experiences in Paris.
The Cave Manger typically marries simply prepared high quality ingredients with wines sourced from a diverse array of wine regions with an emphasis on lesser encountered appellations, responsibly farmed terroir and vignerons on the vanguard of natural wine making.
RESPONSIBILITIES AND SCOPE OF WORK
The General Manager of Verjus will oversee both the retail operations as well as the service operations.
A broad set of responsibilities that includes directing the sustained success, growth and overall asset management of the Company as measured by the budgeted financial goals and owner's objectives, and the QPA Mission Statement. In this capacity, the GM will coordinate and manage the entire operations of the wine bar and wine merchant including but not limited to; daily operations, service protocols, employee retention, facilities management, operational and financial effectiveness. Fundamental to the position is an understanding of the owners vision and plans for the Company and the ability to communicate and manage to them effectively.
