Adda, Rahi, & Masalawala Staff Support Fund

Dear all,

We need your help in this time of crisis! We still can't believe that less than a week ago we had no idea of the level of disruption that COVID-19 virus would bring upon us. In the last few years, we created three restaurants, Adda, Rahi, and Masalawala with a team of 100+ members, but never faced something of this magnitude with so many unknowns. The biggest impact is being felt by our restaurant staff that has served us unwaveringly over the years but now have nowhere to turn. We already have let go of our management salaries and made significant cuts in all areas, but it all seems to be a drop in the bucket given the scale of the challenge. These people are the engine of not just our restaurants, but the New York dining scene. Everything that we are today is due to the passion, grit, and leadership of these individuals. We simply cannot sit back and let them fall through the cracks at a time when they need us most. Therefore, we are setting up a support fund where our friends, family, and patrons can come together and donate to help the staff in need.

PS - For anyone donating even $1, we will create a special wallpaper with each of your names and/or images that will go on a wall of Adda. Anyone donating $100 or more will receive a special cocktail at Rahi, plus name on the wall. For $500+ a 3-course meal for two at Rahi, plus all others. For $1000+ a special 5-course meal for 2 at Rahi, plus all others. All donations come with socially distanced hugs. 

PPS - These pictures are from our 2 year anniversary of Rahi and the Holiday Party of 2019. Let's get past this and create even better memories. 

Thank you all,
Roni Mazumdar & Chintan Pandya
