Algemene informatie

An opportunity to work in Amsterdam’s famous Art Deco restaurant, which will also house the very first (soon to be) Hard Rock Hotel in the Netherlands. Do you dish out the most innovative culinary creations, and do you enjoy being in the culinary spotlight? Then you may well be the new superstar of Café Americain.


You will prepare the dishes for all the food & beverage outlets in the hotel, from the kitchen. Your job will be to ensure that the dishes only leave the kitchen if they not only taste good, but look good as well; be it breakfast early in the morning or the last dessert of the evening meal. As a Demi Chef de Parti, you are of course fully familiar with the latest cooking techniques, food trends, and ingredients. You know exactly how to efficiently organise your working day so that you are never short of time, and are always eager and willing to offer a brainstorming-based menu, because we always want to pleasantly surprise our guests with our menu and exquisite dishes. This way, each working day is different, either for you or for your colleagues.
In the fifties, this had already established itself as a meeting place for Amsterdam locals; today, it has acquired iconic status next to the (soon to be) Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American, which offers a truly phenomenal view of the Leidseplein. This well-known Art Deco restaurant is a modern brasserie that is breaking new ground with a blend of ‘class’ and ‘classics’. From early morning till late at night. Café Americain represents historic allure - according to the 21st century. Excellent quality, an accessible style, and brimming with personality. In addition to Amsterdam items on the All Day menu, it also offers Dutch ingredients.
