Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which also owns and operates the award-winning Ocean Prime Naples, is seeking qualified candidates to join Del Mar, a new Mediterranean-inspired restaurant set to open December 2021. The restaurant will be located on vibrant Fifth Avenue in the former Café Lurcat location at 494 Fifth Ave. S. in Naples.

Del Mar Naples is hiring for all positions, including sous chef, baker, servers, bartenders and more.

Training teams are dedicated to helping associates build skills and confidence, and the company offers highly competitive benefits.

Cameron Mitchell Restaurants has tapped Rick Giannasi to serve as general manager at Del Mar Naples, responsible for hiring and overall restaurant operations.

Giannasi brings more than 30 years of restaurant experience to Del Mar Naples, including nearly 15 years with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants.

“Just like at Ocean Prime, our associate-first culture is at the very core of the guest experience,” said Rick Giannasi, general manager for Del Mar Naples. “We invest in training and promote from within, giving our associates the opportunity to grow their career with us while creating memorable experiences for our guests.”
