JP Samuelson's Sopranos: Website up, now hiring front-of-house positions
It looks like JP Samuelson's upcoming restaurant, Sopranos Italian Kitchen, is coming along. Samuelson tweeted last week, "menu is almost done, hope to b open by late march website is up, heres the link www.sopranosmn.com to get on the mailing list."
It appears that there is a friendly competition between Samuelson and Tim McKee, who is consulting for the upcoming Japanese restaurant Masu Sushi & Robata, to see whose restaurant will open first. Samuelson tweeted on Feb. 4, "will Sopranos open before Masu? the race is on!"
His competitive fire seems to be helping Soporanos taking the lead. Today, positions for entry-level manager, servers, bartenders and wait assistants for the soon-to-open Italian restaurant were posted on craigslist.com.
