Two Lavallette restaurants were thanked by officials Tuesday after donations to healthcare workers and local police amidst the heavy response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Crab’s Claw Inn provided 160 meals to Community Medical Center, which were delivered by local residents Brian and Mandy Costanzo.
“All meals prepared by Chef Craig of the Crab’s Claw!” a Facebook post said.
The legendary Lavallette bar and restaurant is offering curbside takeout and delivery. Prime rib is the special on Wednesday, the restaurant said via social media.
Lenny’s Pizza & Italian Grill, another borough institution, also lent a helping hand. Lavallette PBA No. 372 publicly thanked the restaurant for donating dinner to the department Tuesday night.
“It’s times like these where friends are needed most,” the organization said on its Facebook page. “We will pay it forward.”
Lenny’s, like the Crab’s Claw, is also offering take-out and delivery service.
