Gantry Hospitality Family Relief Fund

Dear Friends and Family,

As you know we are extremely proud of our two Long Island City restaurants, Maiella and American Brass. We never thought we would be forced to temporarily shut down our restaurants. There was an announcement by the Mayor on a Sunday night, and the following Monday was our last day of dine in service. Our employees did not have time to financially prepare themselves to be out of work for an extended period of time.

We are in the restaurant business because we care for our guests and we wish to make their day special. Providing for our guests has been a team effort involving over a hundred talented members who spend countless hours training, prepping, and executing a vision. Our team is our family, and it kills us to think of the situation they are in now. Everyone's job is waiting for them when this is all over but for now:

We are asking for our guests to help us get our employees through this tough time by donating here. 100% of proceeds will go to our staff at Maiella and American Brass. Our goal is big, but anything will help.  We appreciate your help and compassion in this trying time. Be safe everyone ,and we look forward to serving you soon!
