Spain’s New ‘Robin Hood’ Restaurant Charges the Rich to Feed the Poor
Madrid’s new Robin Hood restaurant has a unique way of serving its clientele. One of the most popular lunch spots in town, patrons pay for gourmet meals that subsidize a dinner-hour crowd of the city’s homeless. According to NPR, reservations for the restaurant are filled up through March.
The restaurant opened back in December and is run by an octogenarian priest, Father Ángel, who also founded a local charity called Messengers of Peace. “I want them to eat with the same dignity as any other customer,” Father Ángel told NPR. “And the same quality, with glasses made of crystal, not plastic, and in an atmosphere of friendship and conversation.”
The restaurant feeds more than 100 people per night.
