Hey guys need some advice. So im 22 years old and plan on making my move to NYC from Florida in a year and a half when im done paying off my car. My main reason for going is just for the quality of places there and the fact that i love the city.
To any chefs there, what is the current average wage of a line cook? I know places like Eleven Madison pay shit, but what about like normal restaurants? Here the cost of living is high and a line cook makes anywhere from $10-$19 an hour.
If i could make 13-15 an hour in NYC i could definitely survive relatively easy since ill have a roomie and no major bills.
Thanks for any help & advice guys!
PS, i know how hard and tough NYC is, so in before those comments
