City restaurants honored for support of workers' rights
City restaurants are often given ratings based on food and ambiance, but, unfortunately, its less common for a restaurant to be recognized for its commitment to employee rights.
This morning, the NYC Restaurant Industry Roundtable and Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York honored seven city restaurants with Exceptional Workplace Awards, for their support of workers rights and for providing benefits to workers.
The award winning restaurants are: One if by Land, Two if by Sea, Colors, Crema, La Palapa, Raw Soul, K-Dog and Dune Buggy, and Las Chicas Locas.
Also released is The New York City Diners Guide to High Road Restaurants, a consumers guide to dozens of restaurants that go above and beyond city and state law requirements.
