Outermost Inn

Aquinnah, MA


Company descriptionExecutive Chef- Aquinnah, MA

The Outermost Inn on Martha's Vineyard is seeking an Executive Chef.

About the restaurant:
The Outermost has been a family owned restaurant and Inn for over 30 years. Recently, we've shifted focus to the restaurant, where we serve a prix fixe dinner menu 6 nights a week. We offer an amuse bouche, housemade bread, and an intermezzo or pre-dessert in addition to a 3 course menu.

The Inn no longer accomodates guests and serves as staff housing for the BOH. This is a huge advantage to be able to offer housing for potential staff.

Finally, the setting. Being located on the western extreme of Marthas Vineyard, the location is remote. However, sourcing products from purveyors is easily accomplished.
The property is gorgeous, and the kitchen is lined with huge windows. You have an efficent hot line, and ample equipment, appliances, plates, etc. The family is incredibly hospitable, understanding, and supportive in regard to what the job entails.
