Company description West Taghkanic Diner is located off of Route 80 in Ancram, NY. Founded in 1953, our space was redeveloped in 2018 with a focus on highlighting a range of Hudson Valley purveyors. We cater to a range of audiences, and pride ourselves in serving American comfort food that both feels familiar and original.  We care deeply about creating an environment for our team in which they are treated as collaborators, rather than simply as labor. Services can be long and challenging, and it is crucial that all members of the team are healthy and present during the work week. Our two smokers are a cornerstone of our menu. Between spring and fall, we feature high-volume outdoor dining in a functioning pick-your-own flower garden. We have a passionate social media following who is highly responsive to pop-up dinner concepts. Historically, our beverage program has supported locally brewed, distilled and fermented beers, wines and spirits. We cater both to an audience of passionate regulars, as well as to diner-seeking passers by. Job description
