Striking has its benefits: On Wednesday, Campanile will launch Writers’ Soup Kitchen, an $18 prix fixe dinner menu. Campanile, of course, has been a favorite of WGA (and AMPTP) members since it opened two decades ago; even then, I don’t think Campanile offered three courses for $18.
And I quote:
“For 18 years, Campanile has enjoyed continuous loyalty and patronage of writers, executives, actors, and other participants within the television and film industry,” said Mark Peel, executive chef and owner of Campanile. “While we hope for an expeditious and equitable resolution to the strike, we feel compelled to offer our support for the writers during this challenging time and have created a special menu for current members of WGA that meets the high standards of Campanile, at a substantially reduced price.
Beginning next Wednesday night, Campanile will launch its Writers Soup Kitchen menu: A three-course meal including the option of either vegetarian or non-vegetarian soup; a choice of one of three gourmet entrées; and a delectable dessert for a fixed price of $18.
Diners only need to present one WGA card per table to be eligible for the Writers Soup Kitchen menu.
