Newburgh keeps chugging along with great changes. One of the most next exciting changes is the opening of the Wherehouse Restaurant at 119 Liberty Street. Today after doing the usual google searching, I came upon this job listing for the restaurant:
“FOH/BOH Applications accepted for all FOH/BOH positions, incl experienced Baristas for new & exciting concept restaurant in the revitalized downtown Newburgh. Apply in person at The Wherehouse, 119 Liberty St. Tues-Thurs 10-12 & 2-5 as of 1/2. Found in our Help Wanted – Restaurant/Bar category.”
I had NO clue what FOH/BOH means…so after a little research it seems FOH means: front of house. And, BOH means: back of house. FOH workers include Floor Managers, Hosts, Servers, and Bussers. BOH includes the Chef, Sous Chef, Line Cooks, and Dishwashers. They also posted the position on MySpace. It should be interesting to see the help since MySpace attracts a lot of internet savvy/young/students. It seems they are at the restaurant every Tuesday thru Thursday until opening for interviews. That means that the grand opening is SOON! I wish I knew what cuisine they were offering…and a website would be helpful too!
River Architects has the Wherehouse listed as one of their clients for 2008 and you can see their sign in the storefront. They are affiliated with projects for the Brooklyn Museum and Pratt Institute. River Architects was asked to help with the revitalization of one of Peekskill’s oldest structures. Hopefully the city Newburgh could commission them to revitalize the old school or train station. They also have some pretty swanky restaurants, bars, and lounges in their repertoire as well. I don’t know what kind of decor they are planning, but it should be impressive. Check out one of River Architects projects at Fusion Bar & Lounge in NYC. Imagine seeing something like this in Newburgh City??? WOW. Change is happening…..
