On behalf of all the RWRG employees, THANK YOU to all our donors for their generosity and getting us to the halfway mark of our fundraising goal. Today is the first day of May, a new month and hopefully an optimistic start to reopening some or all of our restaurants this month. Everyone wants to get back to work and we miss seeing our customers. Again, thank you for thinking of us and we'll see you soon!

More Info

Dear Marcel's, Brasserie Beck, Lock 72, Wildwood Kitchen, Mussel Bar & Grille and Keystone Korner friends,

As the country continues its shutdown in the third week, I was hoping by this time, that my employees would be receiving their unemployment checks.  As of today (April 9th), only four employees have received their UI checks.  We don't when we will see the end to the closure and many of our dedicated and loyal employees are struggling to make ends meet.  We graciously ask to offer support by donating directly to the RW Restaurant Group Employee Relief Fund.

Funds will be distributed to in-need employees; waitstaff, dishwashers, hosts, cooks, any employee that needs assistance. There are many  families that both the partners/spouses work in the restaurant industry and are both without income.   Any contribution, big or small will be an immediate help.

We are most eager to reopen, rehire and get back to business.  We will never again complain about a bad day at work!  And most importantly, we will be getting back to what we love most; cooking and serving our customers.  We are most grateful for your years of patronage and know we are all in this together.

Please stay safe, be well and we'll see you soon.

Fondly, Chef Wiedmaier and team
