ARP has reopened Mia’s Italian Kitchen, Vola’s Dockside Grill, and Palette 22 for patio dining with no reservations.
“Alexandria Restaurant Partners is preparing to relaunch and hiring for all hourly positions including servers, hosts, bussers and food runners for all ARP restaurant locations,” ARP said on a Facebook event page. “Enter via the Hi-Tide Lounge entrance and bring your resume along with a writing utensil.
