The New York Restaurants Raising Money For The Australian Bushfires & How You Can Help

As Australia continues to be devastated by bushfires, New York restaurants are taking a stand by doing what they do best: serve hungry New Yorkers. Over the next few weeks, restaurants in the city are hosting dinners, donating proceeds and creating special menus in an effort to raise money for communities and wildlife affected by the worst bushfires on record. Here’s how you can help, simply by purchasing a drink, a ticket or a dinner.

The polished new American restaurant, Crown Shy will be serving only Australian wines by the glass this month, with 10% of the revenue being donated directly to the cause. Located on the ground floor of Art Deco masterpiece 70 Pine Street, the dining room and bar occupy a series of rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows leading to an open kitchen, making it the perfect place for post-work drinks.
