Line Cook Cafe Mars

  • Date Posted March 21, 2023
  • Location Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY
  • Category Culinary
  • Job type Full-Time
Company description We are going to be a weird Italian opening soon in the heart of Brooklyn, in the neighborhood of Gowanus. 

Café Mars is an unusual Italian restaurant in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, opening in February 2023. Chefs Paul D'Avino (wd~50, aska) and Jorge Olarte (Ssam Bar, Ma Peche, Cafe Boulud) are taking a all-encompassing look at Italian food, by looking at not just a region in Italy, but everywhere Italian food has a foothold. While that includes happily drawing on all parts of Italy, we also look at what makes unique the many different subsets of Italian-American food, be it Brooklyn, New Orleans, Philadelphia, or St. Louis, as well as countries like Argentina or the itameshi cuisine of Japan.

We are doing it in a kind and fun atmosphere, that still takes a deep approach to food, beverage, and hospitality in very thoughtful and intentional way.

The wine program is currently being developed by Aria Dorsey (Rolf & Daughters, Folk, DBGB-DC ) and the cocktail program by John debary (PDT, Momofuku Group).
