Sage Hospitality Group Executive Chef in North Bethesda, Maryland
Hello Betty Bethesda just dropped anchor at Pike and Rose this spring and is seeking an Executive Chef to join our team at the new surf and skate-inspired restaurant!
At Hello Betty’s outpost, iconic Maryland dishes and ingredients, like mumbo sauce and blue crab, land on the menu. A smoky fire-roasted bucket of blue crabs tossed in Old Bay vinegar draws inspiration from both crab boils and beach barbecues, while the fish and chips and the peel and eat shrimp carry over from the Oceanside location. The kitchen will also dish “tinned seafood,” popular in Spain and made in-house.
At Sage Restaurant Concepts, we impact lives through hospitality. Our vision is to be a restaurant company with a soul. We consistently craft exceptional experiences that forge a bond with guests, enrich our community, and empower our people.
