HELP WANTED – Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar

Now Hiring for Chef and Line Cook Positions

Located in the historic Empire Theater Building in the heart of Downtown Glens Falls, Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar kicks off the revival of South Street, bringing upscale, International Style cuisine in a unique mid century modern setting. Drawing inspiration from the height of the “Pan Am” era, which epitomized luxury in travel, every detail from color scheme to lighting, wallpaper to our overstated bar, will surely leave guests feeling as if they have taken a step back in time and, perhaps, even into Manhattan. Combining International style cuisine with seasonal, locally sourced product leaves our menu with nothing to be desired. Flight offers not only a traditional style menu, complete with appetizers, unique salads and mouth watering entrees, but we also offer a selection of 3 and 4 course tasting menus selected from various regions from all over the world.
