SFA Skillet Brigade Supports the Gulf Coast
Join Dine America on December 1

On December 1, over 225 chefs and restaurateurs will participate in "Dine America," serving Gulf Seafood quality to diners, friends and family. This communal activity, “America's Night Out for Gulf Seafood ” is a chef and restaurant statement supporting the Gulf Coast fishing families and their Gulf seafood catch. SFA supports this initiative and is asking you -- our friends and members in the restaurant industry -- to consider participating in Dine America 2010. It can be your holiday Skillet Brigade. And you'll be in good company with other SFA member restaurants, including Bayona, Cochon, and Restaurant August. For a complete list of participating venues, click here.

For more information on Dine America, including a sign-in page where you can declare your participation, please visit And, if you do participate, please e-mail with a brief report from your dinner, or a copy of your menu, so that we might share news of your good work with other members. Your participation will support Gulf Coast fishing families still impacted by the recent oil spill.

If you're not a chef or restaurateur, but you like to eat (who doesn't?) we ask that you choose to dine out at one of the participating venues in your local area. To find one, visit
