Jean-Georges Restaurants Employee Relief Fund

Dear Guests and Friends, 

On March 15th, 2020, we made the difficult decision to temporarily close our restaurants in response to the global health crisis surrounding the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Our commitment to employee and guest safety meant that we could no longer open our dining rooms to the community we have served for over 30 years.

Many of you have asked how you can help our employees directly. 100% of the donations made here will go to our employees who are no longer able to earn a living because of this forced closure to the public. This includes over 1,000 cooks, bartenders, servers, porters, managers, chefs and many more. 

On behalf of the JoJo, Jean-Georges, Nougatine, Perry St, Mercer Kitchen,  Inn at Pound Ridge, and Abc restaurant teams, we are grateful for your consideration and generosity and eagerly await the day we get to serve you once again.

With gratitude,
JGV and the JG Restaurant Team
