Join the Team


…our team is the heartbeat of our business. We often say that ALTITUDE concepts operate outside of the typical restaurant paradigm. Yes, we still make and serve food, wash dishes, and sweep the floor just like other restaurants, but we’re all about functioning as one team with a positive team culture. Staying true to our purpose, mission and core values is everything. We believe that it’s our responsibility to leave people better than how we found them. That applies to our team, our guests, our vendors, and our community.
