The Asian bao bun restaurant Bird & Bao is just weeks from opening in Patchogue Village. And they are hiring.

Bird & Bao owner and longtime NYC chef Conor Swanson is looking for line cooks, cashiers and dishwashers to help launch the eatery.

Swanson says those with a passion for food should apply.

Email: to apply.


Swanson’s own fried chicken bao bun is the inspiration behind “Bird and Bao,” and a takeoff of the traditional pork bun.

The New York City-style Bird & Bao sits about 15.

As for the clientele, Swanson is hoping to draw foot traffic from locals and visitors alike — with plenty of deliveries going out.

Bird & Bao will also be offering pork and tofu buns, five spice fries, salads and, eventually, chicken and rice bowls, with long-term plans to open earlier on Saturdays and Sundays for breakfast buns.

After an expected several days of a soft opening, the regular hours at Bird & Bao will be from noon to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
