Pizza Maker/Line Cook
Grimm Artisanal Ales is opening a Pizzeria! Lala’s Brooklyn Apizza is looking to build a team of talented and passionate food service professionals to help us launch the soon-to-be rooftop restaurant and bar. The pizzeria will feature our own take on the uniquely charred New Haven apizza, with thin crust made from our house-milled malted wheat, fermented with our own house sourdough culture, and baked in our new wood-fired oven. The bar will feature a full list of Grimm beers, wines from our sister winery, Physica Wines, and a curated cocktail menu (housemade shrubs and batched classics). Spanning almost 4000 sq feet of indoor and outdoor space, we’re thrilled to be expanding our footprint to accommodate more guests and to begin hosting private parties – both at Lala’s and in our taproom.
