Whether you’re a proud Washingtonian or a guest in our capital city, you’ll unwind in complete comfort throughout your time with us. However, that comfort is never at the expense of a style that is unique to Amparo Fondita: beyond the expected, but never over the top.

This is our home and we want our guests to treat it like theirs. Whether an international business traveler or a local dropping by for some brunch—if we’re doing our job right—Amparo Fondita should feel like you are with family.

We are looking for an Assistant General Manager that is quietly confident, approachable, calm under pressure, authentic, understands the concept of extreme ownership, and always looking to go above and beyond. Someone that knows the city and in their free time loves to explore and try new places. We consider Amparo Fondita to be the heart of the neighborhood.

The ideal candidate has extraordinary attention to detail, exacting focus, and strong kitchen management experience. This role requires dedication, passion, creativity, and the ability to persevere through challenging services while constantly striving to maintain the standards of Amparo and our leaders.

Our culture is entrepreneurial, diverse, equitable, inclusive, team-oriented, creative, and unparalleled hospitality experiences underpins all that we do. We believe passion, a clear vision and best-in-class talent leads to extraordinary results.

Our ideal colleague thrives in a non-stop environment, has an open mind, a great sense of humor, loves finding solutions, working with a team, and proactively creating positive outcomes.

The ability to be adaptable, calm under pressure, resourceful and efficient is in your DNA.

As a leader of our in-house management team, the Assistant General Manager (AGM) is expected to create and maintain a caring and supportive environment at Amparo Fondita, while pushing our team to achieve greatness daily. In conjunction with the Executive Chef and our Service Director, the AGM is responsible for overseeing and holding all department heads accountable (kitchen, bar, floor), maintaining financial goals, training and upkeeping a specific level of service in the restaurant and bar.  

Please have solid references and a history of achievement in the restaurant and hospitality  industry. Weekends are required. Ability to speak Spanish is not required but is a plus. Teamwork and leadership are key values of our management.  

We are a second chance employer and our AGM must be on board with promoting the inclusion of  inexperienced staff. As a 2nd chance employer, part of our restaurant's mission is to create economic opportunity for individuals with a history of conviction, immigrant inequity, and other social issues facing our local community with an emphasis on front- and back-of-house employment. We take pride in our diverse and hardworking team.
