Thursday: Benefit at Little Nepal on Cortland to Assist Earthquake Victims

LittleNepal

There aren’t many Nepalese restaurants on this side of the pond, but we’ve got one on Cortland, and Little Nepal is hosting a special dinner on Thursday, April 30 to help victims of the massive earthquake that struck Nepal last weekend:

Our hearts are heavy with the news of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Nepal on Saturday, April 25, killing more than 2,500 people in the country and dozens more in surrounding nations. The earthquake also triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 17 people. With poor infrastructure in a densely populated area, Nepal needs our help more than ever.

Please join us in dining to help rebuild and provide aid on Thursday, April 30.

Little Nepal (925 Cortland Avenue) has graciously agreed to create a donation-only select menu for this evening only. We spoke with the Owner and Executive Chef, Prem Tamang, and he is from the district of Kavrepalanchok, Nepal. All of the cash-only donation proceeds will go directly to his hometown. The restaurant is open from 5 – 10 p.m. Come anytime! Upon your arrival, please let the host / server know that you are here for the donation-only meal. Please note that this will exclude beverages and other items off the special menu.

Please spread the word and extend this invite to your network. Together, we can eat delicious Nepalese Cuisine while making a difference.

Prem, Chasa and Sebastien

  1. Little Nepal is my favorite restaurant on Cortland. It is great that they are doing this for the victims of their homeland. I may not have time to dine, but will definately stop by and leave a donation. Every little bit will help…

  2. would love if there was a takeout or delivery option, I have a little one and can’t make it to dine in but would love to participate and happy to pay in cash!
    If takeout is an option I can share with 50+ families in my new bernal parents group. I’m sure I could get plenty of them to opt in as well!

  3. Take-out is definitely an option – i have a baby, and we’ve done that multiple times.
    The food is excellent, and i’ve spoken with the people there on Sunday – sadly, the staff definitely has some relatives who were badly affected by the earthquake.

  4. So sorry to hear relatives were impacted by this. This is no doubt very hard for them. All the more reason to throw our support behind them.
