Relief support for DESTINO staff!

Hi everyone- When I open DESTINO 20 years ago, I wanted to create an environment where people can “relish the joys of life” via tapas & cocktails in a warm environment. Throughout the years, we have achieved this and have become a staple in giving back to our communities and city. Today, I am humbled to request your support.

Like most of us, we have been impacted by COVID-19 tremendously. We have temporarily stopped operations this week and have faith that we will re-open in time.

Many of you have asked how best to support us during this time, and I felt that this would be the most appropriate way.

My DESTINO family (12 of us) could tremendously use your support in this time of need. 100% of the monies raised will go directly to our staff- to assist with the day to day expenses of payroll, food, rent and living.

Another option is to purchase a gift certificate for yourself or as a gift! If you would like to purchase a gift certificate, please e-mail me at The proceeds of any gift certificate will go directly to our staff!

My sincere gratitude to you all and know that “this too, shall pass.” We look forward to opening our doors in the near future- and celebrating our 20th Anniversary in the months to come. With much love & appreciation- James & the Destino staff #SmallBusinessRelief
