Don’t neglect your spring wardrobe! Help local restaurants

Grand Banks, the ship docked at Pier 25 in summer months, was scheduled to open next month, but that’s obviously now on hold. So instead, Miles and Alex Pincus sent this note and gentle request: “We’re hoping this message finds all of you safe and sound. In the interest of keeping our restaurants afloat (pun intended), we thought putting all of our apparel on sale and blasting you with an email might be a mostly-painless way to ask for a little help. Buy a little something for yourself or a friend and know that you’re doing your part to make sure we’re back on the water this summer. Anything you can do is greatly appreciated. Plus…you’ll look extra cool in your next Zoom meeting.” Pro tip: everything is unisex. Order here or click the photo above.

Bubby’s has started a GoFundMe page to support the restaurant’s staff and 100% of proceeds will go directly to staff members. The restaurant is also offering 50% off all pickup orders for hospital staff and healthcare workers. The full menu is available between 8am-9pm at Tribeca. Guests should call the restaurant (212-219-0666) and ID must be shown on arrival.

The restaurant is offering food and drinks delivery via GrubHub; merchandise, including pancake mix and t-shirts, available online at

Khe-Yo is still open for take-out, delivery and catering, but only Phet, the chef and co-owner, and Nick, the owner/operator, are currently working. The restaurant had to lay off 26 staff members – managers, servers, bartenders, line cooks, prep cooks, porters and our butcher. The restaurant has established the Khe-Yo Employee Relief Fund to provide financial assistance to our entire team. (The T-shirt is pretty cool.)

“We know there are many businesses and people affected by this unprecedented crisis – any amount donated will go directly to our staff to support them in every way we can! Soon enough we will be able to thank you in person over some Sticky Rice & Bang Bang!” Gift card purchases for use at a later date are available here.

City Vineyard has started an Employee Relief Fund and also has gift cards available for use at a later date. It has also gotten creative with takeout and has new wine packages available here that range from $51 for a three-bottle bundle that includes the top-selling Rooftop Rosé to a $235 mixed case of reds, whites and rosés. The latter includes complimentary, contact-free delivery anywhere in NYC. The delivery driver will call you upon arrival and drop off the order on your doorstep, in your lobby, or another designated area.

Individual bottles of wine and food to go are available here with easy online ordering and low-contact pickup at City Vineyard. Employees will bring your order out to you. For food and wine phone-in orders, call 212.627.2020
