Nick & Sam’s Steakhouse in Dallas is known for its steaks, décor and celebrities and athletes who often frequent the dining room.
Recently, they served some local celebrities: medical personnel at four hospitals in North Texas. Those hospitals included Baylor Medical Center, UT Southwestern, Parkland and Medical City.
The hot meals included filet mignon, Ora King salmon, salads, penne ala Vodka and cheesecakes -- all donated to the people who are risking their lives to save so many during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think, just look at what’s going on in the world today, we felt obligated to do what we could and give back. What better way than providing a hot meal to the health care workers that are fighting this first hand every day,” chef and co-owner Samir Dhurandhar said.
Small businesses and restaurants across North Texas are struggling to survive amid stay-at-home orders that have drastically cut their business. Dhurandhar credits the generosity of their loyal customers who helped make the food donations happen.
The latest news from around North Texas.
“It has a lot to do with our guests. Our regular guests have helped us with donations to feed health care workers and we have been getting a lot of support from the community through helping us with our delivery and pick up service,” Dhurandhar said.
