Job Description

At Southall, we are looking for team members to help us as we continue our journey to inspire culinary consciousness � showcasing fresh, seasonal fare that highlights the path from seed to plate. Our dining experiences take place just steps from where our ingredients are grown and raised.

Our two restaurants, Sojourner, and January, each evoke a feeling of their own; Sojourner, our center of the life in the Inn, where all are welcome to gather, and our all-day and in-room dining emanates from its kitchen.

It is where our guests will come to share the joy of a meal with family and friends all while watching it all prepared in state-of-the-art open kitchen.
