Barista


Description

Inside Summer House, guests will find a breezy, beach house environment reminiscent of the sunny ocean-side city of Santa Monica, CA. Known to most as the place where summer never ends, Summer House has locations in Chicago, IL, North Bethesda, MD, and counting! The California-inspired menu, led by Chef Ben Goodnick, features simple ingredients sourced from local grower partnerships and sustainable products with a heavy focus on vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Rosé is poured all day off the signature Rosé Cart, featuring the signature Summer House Rosé, alongside an extensive wine and handcrafted cocktail list. The Bakery positioned at the front of each restaurant also displays a glorious assortment of baked goods, including the restaurant's famous vast cookie selection. No matter the weather, the bright and airy vibes always fill the atmosphere. Whether you’re in for date night, a family get-together, or brunch with friends, summer is waiting for you on the other side.
