We love eating at Juliet; unlike many restaurants, we’d love working there too. At their elegant yet accessible European-inspired cafe, chef Josh Lewin and Katrina Jazayeri pioneer an “Open Book Management” approach with staff, employing a comprehensive business-literacy system to help workers build rounded hospitality careers in a gig economy. And there’s no tipping: Juliet pays staff livable hourly wages plus quarterly shares of profits, giving everyone greater incentive—and stronger stakes in collective success.
