Monte's & Denino's Employee Fund

Loyal friends and customers of Denino's and Monte's such as myself would like to provide support to the staffs, who are out of work due to the COVID-19 closing of New York City restaurants. They have been serving us, making us laugh and providing a vital social link, but they depend on tips, which unemployment will not nearly compensate them for.

From my personal experience, serving a bottle of wine at home is a lot less expensive than ordering a few glasses out. So I'm happy to put some of those savings into the hands of those who brought us so much pleasure on so many occasions.

We plan to give the funds you generously donate to Peter and Joe, who will distribute to their staff members in greatest need.

Thank you for your generous support, we will toast to everyone's health when things get back to normal, which they eventually will. We New Yorkers survived the Great Depression and Recession, 9/11 and Sandy and together, we'll get through this too!
