Supporting the AAPI Community

We are cautiously rejoicing as eateries are opening up again and embracing the new norm of fewer diners indoors. It seems that George Chen’s Michelin-rated Eight Tables (8 Kenneth Roxroth Place, San Francisco) was ahead of the game pre-pandemic with his intimate eatery.

While we’ll be making dinner rounds to as many restaurants as we can, Eight Tables deserves a special shout-out for recognizing the flurry of racial discrimination against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and offering a 20 percent discount for the rest of the year for those residing within a 20-block radius of Chinatown. Now, that is what community is all about.
