Last night, I met with members of the Chestnut Hill Community Association's Board regarding a "Community Supper" they are planning on organizing later this month. The event will be held on Wednesday, September 30 outdoors at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-fields, and limited to 50 attendees per current regulations. In order to maximize local impact, we are interested in purchasing all meals for the event from local restaurants, and we need to know which restaurants would be interested in participating.
In order to keep logistics manageable and make it worthwhile for restaurants while giving participants choices, CHCA is looking to have no more than 3-4 restaurants as designated ordering options. Similar to a traditional restaurant week format, each restaurant would be asked to create a simple prix fixe takeout menu for the event. Menus may offer one meal option or multiple meal options if desired. No discounts need to be offered, but CHCA is hoping that restaurants can design dinner packages at a reasonable price point between $25-$35 per person (including taxes and gratuity) in order to make the event affordable to all. Participating restaurants are encouraged to offer a lower-priced children's option as well.
Detailed logistics will be discussed with participating restaurants, but all orders will need to be packaged for take-out so that they can be distributed to attendees at the supper location. Commitments are needed quickly, so please reply to me as soon as possible if you are interested in participating!
