At the heart of what we do is American food and drink at a high standard but always full of love and classic aspects of the USA. Our kitchen team is led by Head Chef Alex who is a native of the state of Delaware. We strive for the kitchen to run smoothly through communication, protocols and a team of energetic and team-focused chefs. Our front of house managers are Marieta, Carlos and Lily and they keep everything ship-shape! We try to find staff who want to start with us and grow their skills, brunch and dinner can be fast and furious so our staff are known far-and-away for their superior hospitality.
Currently, we operate a busy weekend brunch service, breakfast and lunch during the week and evening dinners. We are closed Monday and Tuesday, and we always close for Christmas. Further on we see Pickle & Rye expanding which would allow our new hires to be a part of the business from an early stage, presenting career path opportunities.
