Celebrity chef Fabio Viviani and the Carmel Market District team will hold a hiring event at their food tent from 1 to 10 p.m. July 4 and 12 to 10 p.m. July 5 at CarmelFest, Center Green and Civic Square. Viviani will be there for a meet-and-greet from noon to 7 p.m. July 5.
The new restaurant, Osteria Carmel, is located at Market District, 11505 Illinois St., and created in partnership with Chef Viviani. It is scheduled to open in fall 2021. The restaurant is looking to fill 50 positions, including its chef team, management, front-of-house, servers, bartenders and more. Competitive pay and perks are available for both hourly and salary positions. Giant Eagle, the parent company of Carmel Market District, is offering sign-on bonuses to eligible team members.
The restaurant replaces Table by Market District, which closed in March 2020 when the pandemic caused the shutdown. Then the food retailer adjusted to better serve the community during the pandemic with added resources in-store for stocking, customer service, and more.
