Support our Local Resturants

Support our Local Restaurants

Restaurants and bars have always played essential roles in the social, communal and celebratory fabric of our lives.  They feed and nurture us, while providing entertainment, respite, and social engagement. Without them, we no longer have a place to meet, work, unwind and connect. With this crisis, we’ve quickly realized how important their existence is to our community’s social well-being. Studio KDA has had the honor of working with dozens of restaurant clients over the last 20+ years. We’ve compiled a current list of which Bay Area locations are open and offering takeout, which ones are offering online gift cards, and which have employee funds. Although not all of us have the capacity to support them now, some of us do. If you’ve eaten at any of these restaurants and enjoyed their food, staff, and ambiance,  and want to visit then again after this crisis, please consider helping them now.
