In the wake of last weekend's 7.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal, four of Ford Fry’s restaurants will donate to the ravaged country through a fundraiser next week.

Proposed by Executive Chef Craig Richards of St. Cecilia, proceeds will go towards Gandaki Medical College Hospital, as they address the pressing physical needs and provide compassionate care. “One of my first chefs is from Nepal. Subarna Bhattachan was a big influence on me and a mentor,” Richards said. “He is a first-class human being. When he asked me to do something to help his country, I didn’t hesitate to jump on it.”

Each restaurant will donate 20% of the following dishes to Gandaki Medical College Hospital.

King + Duke – Avocado Toast with Radish and Ricotta Salata

St. Cecilia – Agnolotti with Red Wine-Braised Short Rib

The Optimist – Duck Fat-Poached Swordfish

JCT. Kitchen & Bar – Rum-sopped Coconut Cake

Want to try them all? Receive a punch-card, and Ford Fry & his team will donate 50% of those dish sales.
