In space, no one can hear you cook. When we last checked in on the status of Space 220, which is arguably the most highly-anticipated restaurant (supposedly) opening this year, we found out that the planned Executive Chef, Theo Schoenegger, had abandoned ship. With just weeks before the restaurant’s expected Winter opening date, it appears Disney is scrambling to have the restaurant fully staffed, according to new job listings.
Here’s a look at the current job listings for the upcoming restaurant:
With the absence of the “Executive Chef” position listing, we can only assume that the position has once again been filled. That means they can now focus on hiring for other key roles, like Sous Chef, Restaurant Manager, and Front of House.
Here’s the fun blurb used in each listing to describe the restaurant’s overall concept and mission:
Mission Control invites you to join the crew at Space 220 for an expedition like no other. The planets have aligned for you to be a part of the latest cutting-edge and out-of-this-world restaurant. Help ensure a smooth departure as guests blast off to enter the International Space Station suspended 220 miles above the Earth’s surface and assist in delivering an unmatched intergalactic dining experience. With stellar views and gourmet menu offerings, Space 220 is truly “The Height of Dining.”
Patina Restaurant Group will still operate the new restaurant, and they’ve developed a menu that features internationally-inspired cuisine, more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines, and a wide selection of craft beer to be housed in their very own “Space Cellar”. Much like the International Space Station (ISS), the restaurant will also be manned by an international crew.
Currently, these are all the listings posted for the restaurant. Given the current timeline for the project, things should be progressing at lightspeed.
