Dining Deals and Events: Sandy Relief Edition, November 5-11

Aldea will host a major fundraiser 


Bill Telepan hosts a benefit at his Upper West Side namesake that will raise money for the Mayo's fund for Hurricane Sandy relief. Dishes like lobster bolognese and house-smoked brook trout will be served with wine pairings. There are 20 seats available for the 7 PM dinner, which costs $200 per person and takes place in the private dining room. To reserve a space call 212-580-4300.


It's election night, and if you want to watch the returns in the company of some booze hounds, head to 230 Fifth, which will be broadcasting the results live and serving special red, white and blue drinks for $6. There's a free buffet from 7 to 8 PM and 50% of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross.


Aldea chef George Mendes has organized a benefit dinner that's filled with culinary heavyweights. Marco Canora, Seamus Mullen, and Andrew Carmellini will join him in the kitchen, and each will prepare a dish for the special meal. The price is $300 per person, but guests are invited to donate more to help with relief efforts. A cocktail reception starts at 7 PM with dinner starting at 7:30 PM, email nycfoodflood@gmail.com for reservations.


Williamsburg residents are encouraged to go out to dinner tonight for Dine Out Williamsburg. Participating restaurants will donate 10-20% of their receipts to the American Red Cross. You can get a list of venues taking part in the promotion here.


Have lunch at a branch of Chop't today. The salad chain is offering a free drink or snack to anyone who can show that they've donated to the American Red Cross. Get location information here.


Head to your local branch of Shake Shack for a rally. The burger slinger has added a special Rally Shake to their menu and will donate $2 to the Red Cross for every one sold through November 11. The good cause certainly justifies the extra calories.
