Monarch Week

Join us for special drinks and dishes to benefit the monarch butterfly. 

José Andrés has joined World Wildlife Fund’s Monarch Squad as their Monarch Champion in an effort to bring awareness to the species’ dramatic population decline due to habitat loss in their migratory route in the U.S., and climate change. As pollinators, monarchs have a strong positive impact on the lands they inhabit and can significantly strengthen plot vitality for farmers and others who are dependent on the land for their livelihood. 

As the monarchs migrate from their wintering sites, from Mexico to the U. S., Oyamel will donate a portion of proceeds from a special Monarch Week menu to World Wildlife Fund to benefit the monarch butterflies.
