Reverie Relief Fund

This is one of the hardest things I've had to do since opening Reverie. We've been open for 18 months, basically I speak as if the restaurant is a child because my wife gave birth to our beautiful daughter Fiona 10 days after we opened. Reverie has always been about family, and my team here is exactly that. We had to close our dining room, just like every other restaurant in the city and around the country. We have been able to do a small amount of carryout to keep our guests and neighbors fed but that is only a temporary solution to a much bigger issue.

We are still looking into how we can get support from our government but there are things we still need to be taken care of during this time that can't wait. Unemployment isn't enough to cover our staffs financial needs. The team at Reverie is my family, this restaurant is just as much theirs as it is mine. I want to do whatever I can to make sure they have a home to come back to when the dust has settled.

Im asking our friends, family, regulars, complete strangers, anyone who can spare something to help make sure Reverie can continue to grow and we can take care of our team who has helped me bring my dream to a reality.
