MIDTOWN — Following Saturday's massive earthquake in Nepal—which may have killed as many as 10,000 people, and displaced countless more—the country needs considerable help. Chef Michael Lomonaco is urging restaurateurs to donate a portion of their May proceeds to the American Red Cross, or to add a line to receipts so that diners can donate directly, as part of his #DineOut4Nepal campaign. He is donating a portion of the proceeds at both Porter House New York and Center Bar to the cause. [Eaterwire]

For $44, you'll get a plate of spreads, Greek cheeses, wine or beer, and a seat on the patio. The first movie will be Reservoir Dogs, with Annie Hall, The Big Lebowski, and The Shining among the other highlights. Seatings begin at 7 p.m., call 212.695.8080 for reservations. [Eaterwire]
