COMAL is hiring for Sous Chef to lead and complete our team, now that we have returned to full operations.

Comal has been a community mainstay since opening in downtown Berkeley in 2012. Recognized for its excellence by Michelin Bib Gourmand & SF Chronicle Top 100, Comal serves delicious regional Mexican food specializing in masa-based dishes, wood-fired hearth cooking, craft cocktails and agave spirits. Comal’s food is seasonal, and ingredient-driven. The simple, yet refined food is complemented by a stellar cocktail list, a well-priced wine list and a handpicked, seasonally changing beer list. We are a large restaurant and aim to have broad appeal. As such, our food is reasonably priced, especially given the quality of ingredients, and the menu is designed to be festive and encourage sharing.

The Comal culinary team, under Founding Executive Chef, Matt Gandin, is at the heart of our operations, bringing dedication and passion to our high quality, high volume kitchen.

Those who thrive in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment and are passionate about food & drinks will make excellent team members. Connect with us soon!
