Beginning June 1st, Ortzi Restaurant will be offering Pride-inspired food and drink specials all month long curated by our culinary team. In partnership with Live Out Loud, a non-profit organization that empowers the LGTBQ+ youth throughout middle school and high school, we will be featuring our some of our most prominent dishes and donating a portion of the proceeds to this movement.
Starting with dinner, Ortzi will be donating $5 to Live Out Loud for every paella sold. Guests can enjoy a classic Mariscos (seafood) paella or be adventurous and order the seasonal paella, the Bacalao (Atlantic Cod) paella. There’s nothing like indulging in good food for a great cause!
To help with the fun, we enlisted the help of Gin Mare to help sponsor our Pride-themed Gin & Tonic. Taking Spain’s contemporary cocktail and adding in a refreshing flavor and a pop of color, our Kiwi Gin & Tonic will be a grand slam this summer! For every order Kiwi Gin & Tonic purchased, we will be donating $5 to Live Out Loud.
Closing out the last week of Pride Month, we have planned a few exciting activities! Starting Thursday, 6/27 through Sunday, 6/30, we will be extending our happy hour all night long. Our Chef De Cuisine, Chef Michael Han, will also be whipping up pride-themed pintxos in the bar and lounge for everyone to enjoy.
For the final hurrah before Sunday’s Pride Fest, we will be hosting a live jazz brunch on Saturday, 6/29 from 11am-4pm where the hit jazz group Bedlam Swing will be performing. For guests that want to take advantage of our Pride brunch party, we will be serving Pride-filled food, and for every entrée ordered from the menu, we will be donating $5 to our friends at LOL. For an additional $22, enjoy replenished cava, mimosas, and, of course, sangria!
