Everyone has a story to tell during this extraordinary time.
And today, we are spotlighting some of the restaurant industry's greatest stories yet.
There are a lot of restaurants out there doing good things! Of the many great stories, we offer kudos to La Grotta for donating 100 percent of gift card sales to its displaced staff. Diners will come back, and they'll be using those gift cards. Bell Street Burritos is handing out a roll of toilet paper for orders of $20 and up. Cheers to our pal Daniel Troppy who was out in the streets delivering homeless folks food from Red Pepper Taqueria.
Bottles & Bones, which just recently opened in Suwanee to great reviews, is raising money for its small but mighty team via GoFundMe.
Our pals over at Staplehouse have re-branded themselves as The Giving Soup Kitchen, feeding displaced restaurant workers. And like we weren't already obsessed with Jose Andres for all of his do-gooding, he's also turned all his Washington, DC restaurants into community kitchens.
TODAY is The Great American Takeout day, so cast off those oven mitts and let someone else do the cooking!
