Il Cibo Significa L’Amore (Food Means Love)

SideDoor — Corona del Mar supports an earthquake-struck Italian village by donating proceeds from the town’s signature dish to the cause.

In August, a devastating earthquake struck Italy’s Apennine Mountains. Hardest hit was Amatrice, the medieval village known for the pasta dish that bears its name.

On hearing the news, SideDoor, Corona del Mar joined restaurants around the world in support of the Italian Red Cross relief efforts by donating 100% of five days’ sales of the gastropub’s bucatini all’amatriciana to the cause. The toothsome plate features hollow spaghetti-like noodles covered with a perfectly blended sauce that balances the acidic sweetness of tomatoes with rich guanciale (cured pork jowl), savory cheese and a touch of hot chili.

our guests come together with us to support people in need

The fundraising idea was posted on Facebook and Instagram and described on the SideDoor menu. Executive Chef Steve Kling said, “It was wildly successful. Some folks ordered extra servings just so we could contribute even more.”

It’s gratifying to know when we make it possible for our guests to come together with us to support people in need, they’ll respond with love and charity – and enjoy some tasty food too!
