Women in the Kitchen
On Thursday, a few local restaurants make supporting rising culinary stars as easy as rooting for your favorite cook on Top Chef.
Cafe Atlantico, Willow and both Pizza Paradisio and Hank's Oyster Bar locations are among the handful of restaurants around the nation participating in Unite for a Bite. Organized by the Women Chefs & Restaurateurs organization, participating restaurants are donating 15 percent of their food and beverage sales to scholarship programs that help women in the culinary field. There's no special menu, no hoops to jump through: just order off the regular lunch and dinner menus and dine with the added satisfaction knowing that you helped a woman start her career.
CommonWealth, Hank's chef Jamie Leeds' brand-spanking new pub, will open for dinner service on Aug. 6, but the restaurant will not be participating in the Aug. 7 promotion.
