Line cooks at The Esquire Tavern are responsible for preparing their station before the start of each service, making sure that all the supplies that will be needed for the shift are available and ready for use. This includes preparing some items in advance, and stocking the station with plates and bowls. During service, grill/line cooks are responsible for preparing the items requested from his or her station. This requires working with other cooks in the kitchen to make sure that food is ready at the right time, in the right order so that it arrives at the Guest’s table, ready to eat and at the right temperature. At the end of service, the grill/line cook is responsible for cleaning his or her station, and may be asked to help other cooks clean up their stations. This means disposing of garbage, cleaning utensils, pots, and pans, and cleaning cooking surfaces. The grill/line cook will also be responsible for taking care of leftover food, whether that means disposing of it, returning unused items to the correct inventory location, or storing cooked goods for use at another service.
