We are currently hiring for the following positions:

Culinary Guides

The best part-time foodie job in town!

What Avital Guides have to say about the job:

“I love the moment when a guest’s eyes light up with delight!  It is such a good feeling to introduce people to a new flavor or experience.”

“By setting aside a few hours to share a meal with other people, there is a unique opportunity for deeper connection. As a culinary guide, I get to tell the stories of neighborhoods and their unforgettable restaurants. But maybe the greater privilege I have is challenging guests to share their own stories.”

“As an Avital guide, I get to listen and create intentional space for people to feel seen and heard and valued for a few hours in a day. That’s why I love being a guide. Because it’s an active opportunity to love and serve people. And we get to eat tons of yummy food along the way!”

“I love the flexibility this job gives me. I can do my regular full time job and have this as a fun side gig!”

“Getting to know the restaurateurs in the neighborhood has been a great experience – it expedites you into becoming a regular local!”
