Los Angeles restaurants are coming together Oct. 7-14 to raise money for Puerto Rico hurricane relief, with help from several celebrities.
Each participating business will create a dish or cocktail inspired by Puerto Rico, with the sales of the specials to be donated directly to Unidos Por Puerto Rico, an initiative from the territory’s First Lady Beatriz Rossello.
Restaurants participating in the effort include Chi Spacca, Craft, Akasha, AOC, Felix, Jar, Lucques, Michael’s, Osteria and Pizzeria Mozza, and Tavern. Special cocktails can be found at bars including Cliff’s Edge, Three Clubs, Big Bar at Alcove, Filifera at Proper Hollywood, and Cana Rum Bar.
In Palm Springs, Birba and Chi Chi at Avalon Palm Springs will join the fundraiser.
Amell’s winery Nocking Point has already dedicated the proceeds from more than 2,000 bottles of wine to the effort. See Amell’s appeal below.
