It’s so upsetting to know how much the coronavirus is hurting businesses and hard-working people’s livelihood, yet it’s so inspiring to see businesses and people who are helping each other. SOCIAL Costa Mesa is one of those incredible businesses that we’re lucky to have in our community. Beginning Wednesday, April 1 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and through the duration of the “shelter in place” order, SOCIAL Costa Mesa is committed to “SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE” — at no cost to them.
Social will begin takeout, curbside delivery, and home delivery on Thursday, April 2nd and then every Thurs., Friday & Saturday from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. On those days they will also be feeding unemployed or furloughed hospitality employees and any frontline workers for free.
Co-Owners Andrew and Raquel Dorsey and Daniel Biello did not intend to open their doors at SOCIAL Costa Mesa until after the “shelter in place order” was lifted because of COVID-19. But in order to ever open again, they needed to do something now.
“We weren’t just going to sit back and go down without a fight. We saw our people hurting. And in these uncertain times, we wanted to make sure people in hospitality could at least depend on a good meal, bottled water and have toilet paper,” said Andrew Dorsey.
SOCIAL Restaurant Group has started a GoFundMe page to receive donations for their efforts at gofundme.com.
Social Costa Mesa is 512 West 19th St. in Costa Mesa. 949.642.2425.
