A Note from Chef Tom Colicchio

Today I’ve made the hardest decision I’ve ever faced in my 40 years in this industry, to temporarily close Craft and our family of restaurants in NY and L.A as well as our corporate office after dinner service this evening.  We are taking our lead from the science community, public health agencies, and federal, state, and local leaders who have made it clear: the time for collective, coordinated action is now.   Unfortunately, this will result in a temporary layoff for our employees.

Our mission has always been ‘Make People Happy’ but we can no longer do that without jeopardizing the well being of our family of staff, our purveyors, and our guests.  As new information becomes available, we will reevaluate and regularly provide updates.  We will do everything we can practicably do to support you through this transition and help each other stay safe.

For those of you reaching out to ask how you can help: 50% of the proceeds of all gift certificates purchased between today and April 30th will be place into a staff fund to help financially support our employees. To purchase your gift cards today, click here.

With love & gratitude, 

Tom Colicchio
