Job Details

Imperfecto is located at the end of West End, on the boarder of the Georgetown, renowned for federalist architecture, with historic brick and frame row houses, cobblestone streets, and grand estates dating back as early as the mid-1700s. Imperfecto brings an elevated experience and beauty that is truly one of a kind.

At Imperfecto we believe that human beings are not perfect. We are far from perfect. We are Imperfect. And imperfection is what moves us forward and shows us how to improve.

The restaurant design is inspired by the Greek culture. The oldest definition of "perfection", goes back to Aristotle, who defined the concept in three: which is complete; which is so good that nothing of the kind could be better; which has attained its purpose.

At Imperfecto, we know that a restaurant space is not complete if it’s not filled with people; that we will try our best to maintain the highest levels of creativity, flavors and service; and that we will always pursue our purpose of bringing magical culinary experiences to our guests.
