Thank You

We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Help BK Jani & Others Raise Money For Beirut
Four NYC restaurants contributing to humanitarian relief efforts following the August 4th explosion in Beirut.
Written by

In the wake of the massive explosion in the Port of Beirut on August 4th, the Lebanese capital is suffering from injuries and deaths, homelessness, food shortages, and widespread economic devastation. International aid is desperately needed, and donating to groups like the UN Humanitarian Affairs Office, Life Lebanon, the United Nations World Food Programme, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and the International Organization for Migration is one key way to help.

In NYC, restaurants across the city have also come up with ways to help. BK Jani is offering $25 gift cards for their fantastic burger & fries, with all of the proceeds being matched and donated to NGOs involved in relief efforts. You can purchase a gift card through their website anytime between now and August 16th, and find out more about the specific NGOs receiving funds on their Instagram.

Three restaurants in Manhattan have organized relief initiatives as well. Au Za’atar, a Lebanese spot in Alphabet City, is donating a portion of their outdoor dining, takeout, and cookbook sales to the Lebanese Red Cross throughout the month of August. Ilili has partnered with Seal, a NGO focused on helping underserved communities in Lebanon, to promote a disaster relief fundraiser. And for at least the next four weeks at Manousheh, a portion of all proceeds at this all-day Lebanese bakery and cafe in the West Village will go to supporting victims of the blast.
