Take-Out Tip of the Day: Order from APL, Help Feed People in Need
Los Angeles, CA
Feed yourself and feed someone in need.
Feed yourself and feed someone in need. For every meal ordered from APL Restaurant in Hollywood for takeout or curbside pickup, the steakhouse will donate the same meal to someone at the St. Joseph Center in Venice, a non-profit that provides support to homeless families and individuals and others in need.The meal-matching program is a joint effort between APL chef-restaurateur Adam Perry Land and his buddy Jimmy Kimmel.
APL’s takeout is fairly affordable and casual, more inline with the barbecue offerings the restaurant does for lunch than its steakhouse dinners. There are chili dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, BBQ brisket, fried chicken and fried pork chops. But, If you’re looking to splurge (and get a steak for someone at the St. Joseph Center), there is a $42 NY Strip.
