MCC Small Business Recovery Grant Distribution: Suteishi Restaurant in South Street Seaport Area

MCC awarded a $500 grant to Victor Chan, owner of Suteishi Restaurant, 24 Peck Slip in the South Street Seaport footprint. Victor’s restaurant was 6 feet under water during Sandy and now the landlord has to replace AC units as well as make other infrastructure repairs to the building and space. Victor has spent 7 years at this location building the business and his clientele and did not want to give up and move elsewhere. He thought out of the box, raised some monies through crowdfunding and is renting a kitchen from other local business owner so he can offer his catering menu, keeping some of his employees and satisfy his customers even though the restaurant is not open. Good for you Victor!

We thank Constant Contact’s SaveLocal, XES in Chelsea and Paypal for helping raise the funds.
