Neighborhood Restaurant Group Family Fund

The Neighborhood Restaurant Group was founded in 1997 with a singular and humble goal: to build a restaurant that would embrace the community and serve as a joyful gathering place for friends and families. Over two decades later, we have been honored to expand this dream into many more neighborhoods, to serve countless guests and to develop lasting friendships and loyal patrons along the way. 

Neighborhood Restaurant Group - like so many others in this incredible, tight-knit industry - has been dealt a crippling blow. We have been forced by circumstances well beyond our control to lay off over 90% of our staff, and while we found a way to pay everyone for one week, our resources have been stretched to the breaking point. As such, we are turning to you - our neighbors, our friends, our patrons and colleagues - to help us support our employees who have now found themselves without jobs or opportunities for income.

100% of proceeds from this GoFundMe page will go directly toward supporting our teams who need immediate relief as we navigate this crisis.

Whether you are in for penny or a pound, just know that every bit counts, and that we would not be asking were the situation anything but dire. Our employees are the lifeblood of this company and form the backbone of this amazing industry; they are the core of our communities and the heart of our restaurant family. We are working to support them through our to-go and delivery efforts and through our gift card sales - and we will continue to do whatever it takes. With your help, we will survive this crisis so we can continue to support our team and the communities in which we operate.

All  of your generous donations received in this effort will go directly to our staff.
