Job Description:


Shilling Canning Company is a Michelin-rated restaurant from Chef Reid Shilling that features a menu driven by the seasons and ingredients sourced from local partners in and around the DMV area. Menus change regularly based on what is available from our partner farms including our innovative beverage program which incorporates local producers, trim from the kitchen, and seasonal flavors.

We seek to offer an approachable menu with integrity - both in concept and execution. All proteins are butchered in house, seafood is carefully selected from local fishermen and vendors, soups and sauces are based on the restaurant's own stocks and artisan breads are baked fresh on-site daily. With prix fixe and a la carte menus as well as a tasting menu exclusive to the chef's counter and a ghost kitchen sandwich shop, we are both a neighborhood destination and a place to celebrate a special occasion or milestone.

Our professional management and front of house team brings experience, skills and dedication to match those of the kitchen. Our service is honest, warm, and welcoming, while maintaining a high level of professionalism and a commitment to being detail oriented.

Each team member shares our belief in the power of respect, fostering a spirit of collaboration and pride of ownership. From the very first of season tomatoes hand-carried in by the farmer who grew them to a Napa wine that you won't find distributed anywhere else in DC, we share a desire for continued learning and a passion for food & beverage.
