Border Grill and Socalo Employee Relief Fund

To all of our amazing customers in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Las Vegas or honestly anywhere out there,

As you know, we made the very difficult decision to close all of our restaurants including delivery, to go, and catering with the goal of keeping our staff safe and healthy while trying to help contain this horrific virus. Over the last 38 years the part of our business that we cherish more than anything is our unbelievable staff. The passion, the spirit that our team has, the craziness and fun times we have in the restaurants, the stories we all share, both happy and sad, the experiences we have had that have caused us to cry and also cry tears of joy is absolutely stunning. Our restaurant family truly is a family, some have been with us for 10, 15, and 20+ years, and we are trying to navigate along with everything else, how we can best help support this incredible group of people through these very challenging times.

So, we are reaching out to each and every one of you, to see if there is a way, for you to support in our team through this time. Our goal is to figure out, how can we get them the aid that is so needed. These are the people that make it all happen, day in and day out. They all work their butts off to create an environment that is friendly, warm, loving, caring, fun and cook food that is yummy and heartfelt. Anything you can do to help us support our team right now will do so much to keep our team and their families healthy and feeling hopeful. Please know every little bit helps.

From Mary Sue and myself, we are sending good thoughts to everyone out there, all over the world for health and recovery.

Thank you all,
Chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken
