Many restaurants give lip service to sustainability.

When the United Nations named the Mediterranean Diet a Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010, it stated that sustainability is a core value of the Mediterranean dining tradition. It is therefore one of our core values at Amali.

Our commitment to this very Mediterranean ideal of sustainability is embodied in our food, wine and design.

But true sustainability also involves economics and contribution to ones community. It doesn't just mean buying from a certain farm or or using repurposed wood in the restaurant.

As part of this core mission, we work with New York City public, private and charter elementary schools to help them fundraise and teach their students about the health benefits of the Mediterranean way of life.

If you are interested in learning about the ways which we can work with your school, please email kylie@amalinyc.com.
