Patina Restaurant Group - Orlando, FL



seeks Sous Chef for THE EDISON




Patina Restaurant Group will bring world-class cuisine to the Disney Springs outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida near Orlando. Four new concepts that will be connected as part of one large complex and will be introduced to Disney Springs in the Fall of 2017. Each of the concepts are housed in key locations that play an integral role in the Disney Springs origin story, such as the former airline terminal, an underground rum running tunnel, and the former electrical power plant, providing rich territory for story-telling.

The Edison - with an estimated opening of November 2017, is a lavish "Industrial Gothic" restaurant, bar, and nighttime destination with live entertainment. It presents cabaret, burlesque and music, craft cocktails, and classic American dishes. As it is an extension of our Downtown Los Angeles location, the concept continues as "where science meets industry" and the venue is rooted in creativity, imagination, and innovation. Patina is looking for experienced and dedicated leaders to join our team and lead this brand new adventure.
