Serious foodies will be happy to learn that they’ll soon have the opportunity to chow down on traditional Chilean food and drink—and a veritable excuse to do so. Next month, six New York eateries will be offering up a special appetizer or drink, with proceeds going directly to Habitat for Humanity’s rebuilding efforts in Chile.
From April 5-9th, the restaurants will be helping the earth quake relief effort while servicing customer’s taste buds with dishes like a traditional beef empanada (Freemans), Alfonso olives cured in red wine (The Smile) and a unique take on the empanada, with chorizo substituting for beef (La Esquina).
