Support your local Schwa

This is our appeal to anyone who can help Schwa remain open through and after this incredibly difficult time. Schwa is a chef owned and  family operated restaurant that has been a haven for young chefs to mature through un-mature methods. It has been a haven for guests to dine with us in our home and leave with an incredible and memorable experience. We understand how difficult this time is for everyone and just hope we ALL make it through together. If you can, please donate to the staff so the future dining scene doesn’t suck. If you can’t donate please share this message. 

      We thank you for the continued support,
                                 Michael and Staff of Schwa

If you can’t donate to us, please consider donating to others in the service industry. We are part of the backbone that gives our city its divine character.
