Mutu's Italian Kitchen

Server / Cocktail Waitress / Hostess / Busser

At Mutu's Italian Kitchen, I worked mostly as a server in the dining room and as a cocktail waitress in the lounge. As a server, I had a working knowledge of the dinner menu, took excellent care of tables, did bottle wine service, and kept up with side work. As a cocktail waitress, I worked in the lounge, mostly selling drinks and appetizers, helping the bartender pour drinks, greeting large amounts of tables in a short amount of time, and delivering drinks as quickly as possible. This job helped me further my people skills as well as improved my ability to multitask.

Steamworks Brewing Company

Lead Hostess / Wheel / Expo / Busser

I worked mostly as a lead hostess and wheel at Steamworks Brewing Company, the largest and one of the busiest restaurants Durango has to offer. As a lead hostess, I worked with computerized hosting software, greeted customers warmly, and seated people as promptly as possible. As a wheel, I organized all food items from the kitchen and sent them out to the tables, making sure all of the dishes were presentable and delivered properly. In both positions, I also delegated duties to my backup hostesses and expos. This job taught me how to be a team player while also handling myself calmly in a position of higher responsibility and how to best accommodate customers in a busy restaurant setting.
