The Fat Radish NY Employee Relief Fund

Dear Friends of The Fat Radish NY,

 We closed our doors on March 14th and have seen the devastating effects the COVID-19 virus has had on the hospitality industry and the world. We are approaching the 10-year anniversary of the restaurant – the hardest part of the closure for us is what this means for the immediate future of our staff and their families. Our valued staff are the backbone of The Fat Radish and made it the special place it is, over the last decade. Many have been with us since we first opened.

Earlier in the week we held a food drive and since then have been overwhelmed by the support of our community looking for ways to help. So, we are setting up a fund, the Radish fund, to help support our restaurant family through this very hard time. 

100% of the Employee Relief Fund will go directly to our amazing staff. Many live paycheck to paycheck and in these times of uncertainty many will not be able to find alternative work until the restaurant opens again. We will pay it out on weekly basis to our team equally both front of house and back of house.  

Over the last 10 years we have had so many amazing moments at The Fat Radish. It has always been a valued meeting place for the community and for the gathering for friends and family. Also, we as a team have been able to help many charitable causes over years.

So we are writing to you today to ask if you would be able to be able to make a donation and so help support our restaurant family during these exceptionally hard times. Thank you ever so much.

For those of you who are fortunate enough to donate $100 or more you will receive a $100 gift certificate to dine with us on our reopening.  

We are sending love to you all and hope you are safe and well.


 Thank you so much,
Natalie, Phil and Michelle
