LaLou Employee Fund

Dear LaLou Friends and Family, 

On Monday, March 16th we made the incredibly difficult decision to close our doors. While we had hoped desperately to hold on through the current crisis in support of our team, the city has given us no choice but to shut down operations. We understand that the health and safety of our employees and community is top priority, but it breaks our hearts that we are no longer able to provide a workplace and a paycheck for our talented staff. 

Every decision we have made throughout the life of the business has put our employees first. Now that the doors are temporarily closed, we are asking for your help to support the people that bring LaLou to life each and every night. Anyone that has stepped foot into LaLou knows that our staff is the lifeblood of the restaurant. They have stood by us through thick and thin, and it is our every intention to use our platform as much as we can to support them in this very challenging time. 

Please donate to support our team in this time of need. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this fund will go directly to our back-of-house and front-of-house staff. If you are able to give, please do so now.

All our gratitude,
Dave Foss, Joe Campanale and Ilyssa Satter
