“Versa Restaurant — a wonderful rooftop scenario, just beautiful, it’s really like an oasis in midtown.”
Fox 5 News
“The restaurant has trained its staff to do the proper cleaning in all the right places, so necessary today. It’s good to know someone is looking after you and following all the local rules as well.”
“New York City’s most prolific owners, executive chefs, and other hospitality leaders have joined together — creating a best practice model for all to use once New York City reopens.”
“The Backal Hospitality Group sent meals to Lenox Hill Hospital — all a part of the Thank Our Heroes program, helping struggling businesses while showing appreciation for people working on the frontlines of the pandemic.”
NY1 "They don’t make ‘em like this any more. West Village hangout the Cellar Dog is a basement bar and pool hall where the sofas are scruffy, the drinks are cheap and the ambience is jovial." TimeOut
“For those looking to create a special at home dining experience, Hampton Road Trip is ready to bring the festivities straight to your door.”
We love our crew! Chefs German, Eric, and Julio work incredibly hard to make BHG the best it can be. They bring flavor, charm, and creativity to every event, location, and table. Cheers to the people who don’t make work feel like work 🥂

Thank Our Heroes was started in March 2020 with a simple mission- to float local restaurants while feeding those in the Lenox Hill ER sacrificing themselves for our collective safety.
To date, Backal Hospitality Group has helped provide over 40,000 delicious, nutritious, safely packaged meals to the doctors, nurses, administration, security, cleaning people and others who exemplify the best of humanity; compassion, determination and strength.
With an initial generous donation from the Town School, family and friends, Liana Backal partnered with Butterfield Market and Joelle Obsatz, her forever new friend. (check out Butterfield Market's incredible Madison Avenue location!)
Our mission continues with The Penrose, Cafe Evergreen, O Cuisine, Il Mulino, Ron Ben Israel and many others. With our beloved hospitality industry decimated, we feel privileged to play a small part in something meaningful.
With your ongoing donations we will stay true to our goal. Feed the healthcare workers at Northwell Health by supporting restaurants and small businesses.
With gratitude and hope, Liana and Arthur Backal and the entire Backal Hospitality Group family.
