Here Are GoFundMes For Your Favorite Lower Manhattan Restaurants

With our favorite restaurants closed or only able to do delivery and/or takeout service during the COVID-19 pause, many service-industry employees are out of work or working fewer hours. Thankfully, there’s a way to help them, even after you’ve ordered and demolished your dinner. 

Several Downtown restaurants have set up GoFundMe accounts, which can help fill the wage gaps that so many of your former servers, baristas and bartenders are experiencing right now. If you are interested in directly supporting your neighborhood go-tos, check out these links:
