Restaurants have been some of the hardest hit businesses in New York City during the pandemic, and not even creative outdoor seating may be able to save them.
Commercial real estate developer Brookfield Properties — which counts several restaurants in its portfolio — is stepping up to help both restaurant employees and the people who miss dining out in the city.
Brookfield has compiled a digital cookbook, “Bite Sized: A Taste of New York’s Culinary Favorites,” that’s filled with food tips and recipes from some of Manhattan’s most famous eateries, including Seamore’s, Black Seed Bagels, P.J. Clarke’s, Schnipper’s, Sweetgreen and Umami Burger.
The cookbook is a benefit for the nonprofit Restaurant Relief for All Restaurants and Robin Hood, which are working to raise donations for restaurant employees. It’s available for a $10 donation.
Inside, you’ll find colorful graphics and smartly designed charts showing tips from Black Seed Bagels on how to compose a perfect breakfast sandwich, the anatomy of a Num Pang sandwich and building a better salad according to the salad experts at Sweetgreen.
Recipes include The Original Impossible Burger from Umami Burger, Schnipper’s cheese dog, cacio e pepe from Sant Ambroeus and more. All of the proceeds go to benefit restaurant workers through ROAR.
