But right now the team that makes up our heart and soul are in need of the same hospitality we've lived, breathed and pursued for all of our careers. With no relief coming from local or federal government in light of the second NYC shut down, restaurant workers will struggle to purchase food, provide for their families and stay afloat during these unprecedented times.
As the management of Llama Inn and Llama San we see it our responsibility to do everything in our power to help our family. And it wouldn't be fair to anyone, from our porters and prep cooks to the servers and chefs who count on the cities livelihood to survive, if we didn't utilize every option we have to get assistance for them.
When the cogs of politicians and federal aid has failed us - we as New Yorkers with hospitality in our veins believe we can count on the public to held aid the blow that will undoubtedly affect working class people.
Thank you for always being a part of our endeavors and we hope to see you sooner rather than later with a cold drink and hot plate of food.
