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]
