These Houston restaurants and bakeries are on Ukraine’s side

Houston restaurants raise money for organizations that provide relief to the people of Ukraine. These efforts benefit a range of organizations helping refugees in Ukraine and Poland, as well as other relief efforts.

Underbelly Hospitality has already stepped up. Last week, Chris Shepherd’s three restaurants raised $9,846 for celebrity chef Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen. Additionally, the company’s director of operations, Nina Quincy, spent the past week in Poland feeding refugees.

The list below includes everything from cookies to cocktails to the best pierogies in Houston. In other words, Houstonians have many delicious ways to #standwithUkraine.

Georgia James
The luxury steakhouse will donate 20% of sales from a special wine list created by sommelier Matthew Pridgen. This special offer will last as long as the restaurant is open at 1658 Westheimer Rd. (approximately two months).

Dessert Gallery
Upper Kirby Bakery will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of its Ukrainian-inspired butter cookies to World Central Kitchen.

Kenny & Ziggy’s
The deli in the Galleria area has always sold Ukrainian meatballs. He will donate $2 from each meatball appetizer and $4 from each meatball entree to Razom for Ukraine, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building a more prosperous and democratic Ukraine.

Phat Eatery
Katy’s favorite Malaysian restaurant will donate 100% of the recipes for its roti canai, an Indian-style flatbread, until the end of March.

Pier 6 Seafood and Oyster Bar
San Leon’s beachfront seafood restaurant has created a special cocktail to support World Central Kitchen. It will donate 100% of the proceeds from the Kyiv cocktail (Blue Chair rum, peach schnapps, Blue Curaçao and pineapple juice) to the organization. He aims to raise $10,000 through this effort.

Chef-owner Ryan Lachaine, whose mother is of Ukrainian descent, will do his part for World Central Kitchen by donating 100% of pierogi sales in March to World Central Kitchen. Restaurant Montrose offers both a potato and cheese pierogi as well as a more decadent truffle and caviar version.

Rustika Café and Bakery
The Jewish-Mexican Bakery will donate a portion of the proceeds from its happy hour dessert menu items (Monday through Saturday, 2 p.m. until close) to the International Rescue Committee. Items include specially priced coffee and desserts, including espresso drinks, cookies, pies, and more.

Bakery of the three brothers
Opened by three brothers who survived the Holocaust, this Jewish community staple has created a heart-shaped sugar cookie decorated in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Three Brothers will donate $2.50 per cookie to a fundraiser hosted by the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston. Plus, it will donate $30 per dozen sold for shipping to destinations across America. The bakery aspires to sell at least 1,000 cookies.
