Fat Ox Staff Relief

100% of proceeds will go to our staff at Fat Ox

We are so grateful and humbled by the outpouring of love and concern from our guests who have supported our restaurant for the past 3 years. Providing an amazing experience is our passion and not being able to see and serve you is hard on all of us, personally and professionally. Many of you have asked how you can help our staff during this difficult and unprecedented time of closing our restaurants to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Some have even mentioned a favorite server or bartender by name and we are so encouraged by your kindness. 

We want to ensure our entire restaurant family is taken care of and that includes our bussers, dishwashers, hosts and line cooks who are essential to providing the experiences you enjoy at Fat Ox. But we can't do it without you, our community. As you know, we are locally owned and operated which means we don't have huge companies behind us. We're relying on you, our beloved guests and community to help.

All proceeds will go directly to help our hourly staff cover their rent, electricity, food and medical expenses. We hope this shutdown is short-lived, but the impact on these families will likely linger. 

We look forward to seeing you again soon at Fat Ox. Watch for updates on our social media site @ilovefatox. Until then, stay  healthy and be kind to each other.
