CHARITY WIRE — For every burger purchased on Tuesdays starting on June 2, Jacoby's Restaurant and Mercantile will donate the equivalent amount in ground beef to the Capital Area Food Bank as part of its new Feed the Need campaign. [EaterWire]

STAFF MEALS — Tribeza sat in on Qui’s, Gardner’s, and Lenoir’s family meals, where staffers dine together before service starts. Qui takes the time to experiment with potential dishes. To use every part of the fish, Gardner has been serving piscine soup. At Lenoir, the staff votes on who made the best meal, and the winner gets a restaurant gift card. [Tribeza]

EAST 7TH — Salt and Time chef Josh Jones will preview the restaurant’s new menu with two pop-up dinners at Qui on Wednesday, May 20, and Thursday, May 21. Required reservations for the 6 and 8:30 p.m. seatings are $90, with an additional $45 for beverage pairings.
