Job Details

Lardon/Union/The Meadowlark in Logan Square is looking to expand our team and seeking a full time Closing Floor Manager.

Lardon (Michelin Bib Gourmand 2023), highlights cured meats, artisanal cheeses, sandwiches and coffee in an old world style café environment. Our newly launched dinner service is our take on coastal French fare, with Midwestern sourced ingredients. Rooted in the Logan Square neighborhood, Lardon is looking for a dedicated and driven executive chef who enjoys fostering a team environment and communicating our passion for artisanal food and drinks. Our cured meat and whole animal butchery program has become respected across the city, focusing on all salumi made in house in our one-of-a-kind curing room. Eclectic worldly wines, apertivo cocktails, amari, and local beers are hand selected to be paired with our one of a kind menu.

Union (Michelin Bib Gourmand 2023) is a community-centric love letter to the pride and joy of Midwest: beer and food. Adding to the diverse lineup of outstanding bars and restaurants in Logan Square, this uniquely Chicago concept pays homage to one of the world’s best cities for beer. The beer program is complemented by our New American cuisine by way of seasonally focused, shareable plates for any occasion.

The Meadowlark (Esquire’s Best Bars List 2023, Eater Chicago's best bar 2023), is an intimate, dimly lit cocktail haven that exudes vintage Chicago charm. Comfortably seating 30, friends, neighbors, industry vets and visitors alike are invited to grab a seat around the bar to immerse themselves in The Meadowlark’s rotating creative cocktail menu. As with all Meadowlark Hospitality projects, craftmanship and meticulous attention to detail are paramount. Drinks take center stage with an apothecary-style approach to the art of the cocktail. Our rotating conceptual based menu featuring unique spirits, house made bitters, tinctures, infusions, as well as fresh-pressed juices, market-driven, and seasonally rotating ingredients.

About Us:
We strive to create an environment that promotes transparency, authenticity and passion in all endeavors. We want to have a kick ass team of people working jobs they love, learning something new along the way and finally finding a place you can call home. We are passionate about our people and our products, and looking for like–minded individuals who share the same ethos!
