Full Time • Washington DC
About our Company
We are seeking a dynamic Director of Food & Beverage to join our team.  A successful candidate will have a genuine passion for the hospitality industry and an entrepreneurial spirit.

No Goodbyes @ The LINE DC is an all-day neighborhood hangout devoted to the ingredients in DC’s own backyard— The Chesapeake Bay region. No Goodbyes team tap the farmers, fishers, and ranchers of the East Coast, to create an eclectic mix of feel-good dishes—from carrot cake oatmeal to “Wild & Wonderful” ramp spaghetti—morning, noon, and night.  
They say Atlantic sailors in the 1800s had a rule for their friends and family each time they left shore— never say goodbye. It was a practice meant to inspire good luck: no goodbyes meant a swift, safe return. No Goodbyes at the LINE DC extends that sentiment to all travelers. No matter what journey you're on— we hope to see you again soon.
