Like our fellow NYC restaurants, Francie has delayed our construction and opening due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. In these difficult times we are offering bespoke experiences and gift cards to help us assuage the financial crunch of this delay. We are exploring different avenues of relief but also wanted to reach out to our community of neighbors, family, friends, and supporters by making available advance opportunities to celebrate with us when we finally get to open our doors. A portion of proceeds will be donated to James Beard Foundation relief fund https://www.jamesbeard.org/relief and various GoFundMe accounts in the hope of helping our colleagues deal with this difficult time.
We also encourage everyone to donate to local food pantries, to support your local favorite restaurants and purveyors, and to continue to treat each other with dignity and kindness. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming you just as soon as possible. Thank you for allowing us the chance to be a part of this great city.
