City Grit, one of New York City's most on-the-pulse dining destinations — called a "culinary salon" — is looking for a new home. Under the direction of founder Sarah Simmons, the celebrated pop-up (of sorts) hosts dinners of all stripes — many with tasting menus from some of the country's rising chefs. But with hundreds of dinners in the books, they are looking to move out of their Nolita location and into a space that's more cooking and entertaining friendly.
Although guests love the current venue for its warm, intimate feel, the new location will allow guests to enjoy ammeneties such as seperate restrooms, state-of-the-art acoustics and central air conditioning. To do this Simmons has launched a campaign on Kickstarter with a goal of raising $100,000 in thirty days.
The salon has already found the "perfect location" and invested in contractors, engineers and architects. Now they just need extra funds to make the move official. To donate, click "Back This Project" on the online campaign page. City Grit has hosted some events for worthy causes in the past, so maybe now it's time to show them some support in return.
