Restaurants across the City want people to think pink this October, in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in New Orleans and breast cancer awareness month.
Throughout the month of October, New Orleans’ top chefs will wear pink chef’s coats and designate an existing healthy menu item or create a NOLA Goes Pink (NGP) dish with 10 percent of the proceeds of each sale going directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans. In a city renowned for its sauces and spices, menus will feature healthy alternatives. Wait staff at other participating NGP restaurants will wear official Susan G. Komen for the Cure pink ribbons and the same pink ribbons will be made into decals, so that patrons will know that they are dining in an establishment that supports raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research.
“It’s very rare to have the hospitality community so united,” said Kelly Schulz of the Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We don’t look at ourselves as competitors, but look at ourselves as united in our mission. This program is a great example once again of our hospitality community coming together.”
Among the participating restaurants are some of the City’s best, including the restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton, Arnaud’s, Bayona, The Pelican Club, Café Giovanni and several Brennan family restaurants. So go ahead - Get Hungry for the Cure!
