Look up which Tallahassee restaurants got money

2 min read

More than $17 million in federal COVID aid went to more than 100 Tallahassee restaurants that applied for federal grants from the short-lived Restaurant Revitalization Fund.

Seven Hills Hospitality Group, the owner of local favorites Liberty Bar and Restaurant, El Cocinero, The Hawthorn, and Bar 1903, got the largest check of more than a million dollars, followed by Vale Food Company, Kiku Japanese Fusion and the Village Inn.

The $28.6 billion RFF fund was created in President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan signed into law in March. It was quickly exhausted by high demand and the program ended in July.

The program provided grants for 101,000 restaurants nationwide – representing about one-third of the 278,000 eligible applications received by the SBA. The SBA received thousands more applications that were not deemed eligible.
