introduction
The New York City Restaurant Industry Roundtable
 (“the Roundtable”) is a collaboration of restaurant owners, workers, consumers, and the Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY). As a group, we work together to develop strategies to help restaurants take the high road to profitability and create a better industry that benefits workers, consumers, and employers. Each year, the Roundtable is proud to award local restaurants with exemplary practices that value their workers, and these restaurants are identified as “High Road” employers. Every day, these High Road restaurants prove that it is possible to treat workers with respect and dignity and be a profitable business. Each High Road restaurant in this guide is a member of the Roundtable and is acknowledged for its practices around the following: Promotes a safe and healthy work environment (through one or more of the following):
 • Provides paid sick days to allow workers to care for self or family Provides access to affordable health care options Provides other employee benets such as other forms of paid time
off and retirement plans Creates opportunities for career mobility and advancement: at least 50% of work force has been promoted to a higher-paid position. Lowest non-tipped wage is 25% higher than the New York State minimum wage.In addition, each of these restaurants commits to and implements the following values:
Complies with all city, state, and federal laws governing employment, as well as
requirements set forth by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Creates a respectful work environment free from hostility or abuseOffers a regularly updated employee manual and establishes a neutral grievance procedureMakes training, reference materials, and the opportunity to be promoted available to all
staff.When you dine at any restaurant featured in this guide, you’ll know that they have taken the high road to success, going above and beyond compliance with local, state and federal laws to take care of their employees. In doing so, they foster a healthy work environment based on respect and dignity.

NYC RESTAURANT INDUSTRY ROUND TABLE
Consumers play an increasingly important role
 in shaping the New York City restaurant industry. In recent years, due to consumer demand, many restaurants have shifted towards providing healthy, fresh, organic, local, and environmentally sustainable food options. But while consumer demand has sparked a healthy and environmentally-conscious restaurant industry movement, the treatment of those who work in New York City’s restaurants has been ignored. Consumers must demand that the movement towards a more sustainable restaurant industry includes fair, safe, and sustainable practices for restaurant workers.This guide is a resource to enable consumers to demand a more sustainable restaurant industry for all. Here are some ways to use this guide:
 
Eat out at High Road restaurants.
 Support those restaurants that take the High Road to profitability by choosing one of them for your next meal. Let them know that you chose them from this guide. Encourage your friends and family to do the same!
 
Talk to restaurant managers.
 If you choose to eat at a restaurant not listed in this guide, let the manager know that you care about fair working conditions, including wages, benefits, and advancement opportunities. Encourage them to connect with ROC-NY to learn about how they can improve their practices.
 
Become a social media activist.
If you are on Twitter, tweet your recommendations about #HighRoad restaurants, your support for #paidsickdays, #livingwage, #healthcare, and include us in your tweets (@ROC_NY). Write reviews on Yelp, Foursquare, and other similar platforms about the restaurants listed in this guide – make sure to mention that they are High Road restaurants! Connect with ROC-NY on Facebook.
