Walter’s/Karasu Support For Our Laid Off Staff

We are gutted to have to lay off some of the most amazing human beings at Walter’s and Karasu. While we wait for our government to hopefully do the right thing, we’re doing all we can to raise money for our staff, many of whom live paycheck to paycheck. The restaurant industry has been decimated, and it’ll be a long time before we  all recover.  Restaurants and bars are the heartbeat of NYC, and we need them to come back stronger than ever. Please donate whatever you can to help our incredible team.  They are all jobless. All donations will be divided equitably to those who are in need. These incredible people prep  your food, clean  dishes, take out trash, make your drinks, They are husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, immigrants. Restaurants DO NOT exist without them.  Please help us in giving them the support they need and deserve. Your generosity will go a long way. Thanks!

Danny, Dylan, and our entire Fort Greene family
