Cookery Restaurant Group - Staff Relief Fund

To our community, which has shown us unprecedented love and support throughout the years of operating our small but passionate little restaurant group (The Cookery, The Parlor, and Eugene’s):
We know this has been an extremely difficult and sad time for everyone. Closing our restaurants was sudden and unpredictable and the single most difficult thing we've ever had to do in our careers – not because of what it will do to our business, but because of the devastating impact it will have on our employees. Our staff, the driving force behind our restaurants and the communities we’ve built around them, was forced out of work overnight.
If you’ve been to any one of our restaurants you’ve seen the smiles, energy, work ethic, passion, and hospitality that every dishwasher, cook, server, busser, and bartender delivers. In an effort to make sure our 75+ out of work employees are supported during this uncertain time, we are reaching out to you, our community, to raise money to help make up part of their lost income. 100% of all donations will go directly to our amazing and dedicated staff at each of our three restaurants.
Please consider making a donation. No donation is too small. Thank you for the love and support! We WILL get through this and when we do, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to our restaurants again soon!
David & Cathy
