A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign

515 Cedar St., Santa Cruz
For Restaurant Week, 515 is taking the local ingredients they already use and making entirely new menu items. Sous chef Jessica Carlson explains, “We are going to have fun, while staying true to ourselves. We want our regulars to be excited about trying new stuff.” Carlson recommends such unique dishes as the saffron seafood risotto, with sustainable prawns, mussels and calamari; and the grilled New York strip steak, which will feature a demi glaze.
