After closing for the first weeks of the coronavirus crisis, veteran Bay Area chef and entrepreneur Faz Poursohi is reopening two of his restaurants: His eponymous location in Pleasanton and his MacArthur Park in Palo Alto.
Hours on Mother’s Day will be noon to 7 p.m.
Going forward, meals will be available from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
Poursohi will donate 15 percent of all proceeds to charitable organizations. In the East Bay, the beneficiary will be the Alameda County Food Bank. On the Peninsula it will be the Silicon Valley Food Bank and the Palo Alto Community Fund.
“Food is life and giving back to our community — one that has enjoyed and supported our restaurants for many years — is what we feel compelled to do during this unprecedented pandemic,” he said in a statement.
Poursohi has been part of the Bay Area restaurant scene since 1981, when he was recruited to become executive chef of MacArthur Park. He later purchased that historic property, a 1918 building designed by famed architect Julia Morgan as a social center for World War I Army recruits.
