Dear Friends:

We are so grateful for your inquiries about how to help our hourly employees at Charlie Palmer Steak in Washington, DC.  We have 73 hourly employees at Charlie Palmer Steak and we are so grateful for your support. Here is our plan and we are ready when you are:

- We will convert funds raised into cash cards and will provide them to our hourly employees

- Although we’ve set fundraising goals for Charlie Palmer Steak over two weeks, we are grateful for any support you can give on any schedule

- We are also brainstorming other in-house ways of support


With this in place, our priority is to reopen Charlie Palmer Steak and return these workers—as well as all our employees—to their jobs and you to your favorite tables. 

As I tell every single member of the Charlie Palmer family, this is not an end. It is a bridge and we will step off on the other side together.
