Louisville job fair looks to fill more than 100 positions at two new restaurants

Scheduled from Jan. 14-17

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 5, 2016) — Two Louisville restaurants opening next month are looking to fill more than 100 positions during a job fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Jan. 14-17 at Varanese Restaurant, 2106 Frankfort Ave.

The restaurants—River House and The Levee—are seeking hourly employees for line cooks, dishwashers and prep cooks, servers, server assistants, hosts, receptionists, bookkeepers and bartenders.

“We are looking to hire high-quality, long-term employees on the spot in order to provide a consistent experience for customers at both River House and the Levee,” said Dan O’Connell, general manager of the River House and one of the interviewers.

River House, a 12,000-s.f. premier riverfront dining destination located at 3015 River Road, will offer options for both upscale casual diners and the boating community. The menu will feature regional cuisine with a Southern seafood and steak focus and a raw bar element. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

The Levee, housed in the same building as River House, will include an indoor and outdoor bar and feature small plates and a robust bar program with innovative frozen cocktails infused with fresh herbs and other culinary ingredients. Levee at the River House will be open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday and will offer a unique riverside atmosphere paired with live entertainment in the evenings.

The opening of his new restaurants will fulfill chef/owner John Varanese’s ultimate dream of bringing a riverfront dining option to Louisville. The 27,000-s.f. former boat storage facility at 3015 River Road is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation and construction will complete at the beginning of February 2016.
