Dining Room Host

Pica Rica dining room hosts run our dining room. Literally. There must always be a high sense of urgency and intentionality. 

The dining room hosts collectively fulfill the roles of bussers and runners. Hosts must work intentionally to turn tables while always “keepin’ it REAL” and protecting our guest experience. 

The dining room host is responsible for cleaning and bussing the guest tables in our dining room. Therefore, they must be well organized, courteous to our guests, keep the cleanliness standards of pica rica, and work well with others.
