On Monday, March 16th, we decided to temporarily close La Contenta (our Lower East Side location) and La Contenta Oeste (our West Village location), due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we had to lay off our entire staff.
We truly hope comprehensive government assistance packages are offered to the restaurant industry which has been decimated virtually overnight. It's the only way we're going to survive. However, the immediate need is for our vulnerable employees so that they can sustain their families until we are ready to reopen.
Please consider donating. 100% of your contributions will go directly to our staff. They need your help.
We look forward to welcoming you back once this pandemic is in our collective rear view mirror. Stay safe, NYC! #SmallBusinessRelief
