Two Great Fundraisers: Animal and N/Naka Both Have Benefit Dinners Coming Up
Anne FishbeinChefs Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook at Animal
Two great L.A. restaurants have dinners coming up that benefit charity.
This is the first in a series of "Cooking With Friends" charity dinners Animal chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo will be holding, with a portion of the proceeds from each dinner going to the guest chef's charity of choice. Kostow has chosen Cancer for College, a foundation that provides financial aid to cancer survivors. The eight-course dinner is $135 per person plus tax. Wine pairings will be offered at an additional cost. Call Animal to reserve a table any day after 2 p.m. at 323-782-9225.
If that's a little out of your price range, N/Naka has a series of charity dinners coming up that are actually quite a bargain.
On Jan. 27, Feb. 3 and Feb. 7, chef Niki Nakayama is offering a $55 five-course menu called "Eat/Give/Hope." You can add wine pairings for $30. 100% of proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Reservations can be made at 310-836-6252. (H/T Grubstreet)
