Excerpt of interview with Nino Vendome
“We’ve made a commitment to keep our doors open until our city is rebuilt, healed and up-and-running. To that end, we created the Nino’s Restaurant 9/11 Fund, a non-profit corporation operated exclusively as a relief center that feeds and comforts rescue and relief workers,” said Vendome. “Without constant donations of food and the time of volunteer chefs and waiters, it would be almost impossible for me to stay open. I can’t thank these people enough.”
