José Andrés announced on Tuesday that the World Central Kitchen and its recent #ChefsForPuertoRico campaign has fed 1 million people in PR. However, that doesn’t mean relief efforts are slowing down. New York’s Root & Bone and bartenders across the city are still heading fundraisers for the island. Meanwhile, lower Manhattan is celebrating neighborhood restaurants at the 8th annual Taste of the Seaport.
- Until Halloween day, New York’s Root & Bone will be serving up a happy hour benefitting the restaurant’s Puerto Rico team, which has been affected by Hurricane Maria. Between 4-6 p.m., Monday through Friday, food and drink specials include $8 Don Q Rum cocktails, $3 Amarillo Mofongo & Bacon Bites, $4 Chicken Biscuit with pepper jelly, root chips & pickles, $2 Drunken Deviled Eggs and more.
- Miami’s first ever Taste of Sbe launched last week and will continue through November 17. The monthlong series of events include demos from celebrity chefs like José Andrés and Michael Schwartz, tasting events, wine pairing dinners and more. Some proceeds will benefit Andrés’ World Central Kitchen. Check out what’s in store here.
- Tomorrow marks the 8th annual Taste of the Seaport. Hang out at the bottom of Manhattan and devour bites from Black Tap, Insomnia Cookies, The Tuck Room, Blue Ribbon Federal Grill, Stout, Big Gay Ice Cream and more. Ticket sales benefit Public Schools 397 and 343. Tickets are available here.
- Tickets for Levántense Pa’ Puerto Rico (Stand Up For Puerto Rico) are available now. Some of New York’s greatest bars are shaking and pouring drinks to raise money for relief efforts in Puerto Rico at Sofrito. Expect drinks from Employee’s Only, PDT, Suffolk Arms, Mother’s Ruin and more. Sofrito and Suffolk Arms will provide food. The NY Foundling and The Rock Steady For Life Foundation will be accepting donations.
