There are few times in this world that people can make a large scale difference. The Delancey Street Foundation who owns and operates the Restaurant(s) have done an amazing job of providing a vocational training program for 500 formally unemployable drug addicts, homeless and ex-felons. They provide housing and employment.
On the waterfront in San Francisco they have a 370,000 square foot complex – that was surprisingly built and supervised by the Delancey residents themselves. This is close to mass transit and is home to some amazing views.
I was lucky enough to dine here as a part of our Corporate meetings for my day time job. This place is amazing for the what they do for the community in which they live, they also produce delicious food at amazing prices. The most expensive item on their regular menu is $14. In San Francisco and on the waterfront. If you can when in SFO, eat at the Delancey Street Restaurant.
