The Real Estate Development and Hospitality Company Commits 50% of Proceeds from Caruso-Owned Restaurants In Support of the California Restaurant Association Foundation


November 25, 2020 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – Following Rick Caruso’s response to the devastating L.A. City and County closures, Caruso announced today that the company will be donating 50% of proceeds from Caruso-owned restaurants to the California Restaurant Association Foundation (CRAF).


The organization’s ‘Restaurants Care’ COVID-19 grant provides financial support to employees at the heart of the restaurant community in California, as they work to overcome the struggles resulting from the pandemic. Beginning Friday, the charitable contribution will apply to all take-out and delivery orders placed directly with the 9 restaurants owned or operated by the acclaimed real estate development and hospitality company.


In addition to the donation, Caruso has committed to supporting its own restaurant employees whose livelihoods would have otherwise been upended by the City and Country restrictions.  Caruso will retain all restaurant employees with wages, gratuities and benefits.


Guests can support the charitable initiative by ordering from the following restaurants located at The Grove, The Americana at Brand and Palisades Village:


Blue Ribbon Sushi

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill

Bourbon Steak Los Angeles

Deluca’s Italian Deli




The Fountain Bar

Trattoria Amici
