Red Table Restaurant Hosts Event to Support Historic Wintersburg Preservation
Red Table Restaurant will donate a percentage of proceeds for the entire day’s returns on Monday, May 13 from 11:30am to 9:00pm, to the Historic Wintersburg Preservation Fund. Everyone eating at Red Table Restaurant that day will enjoy a great meal and help preserve Huntington Beach history. The Huntington Harbour Mall also has announced it will match the donation by Red Table Restaurant, doubling the support for Historic Wintersburg. Historic Wintersburg is a century-old goldfish and flower farm including the Wintersburg Japanese Presbyterian Mission complex, founded in 1904. It is a unique, intact pioneer farm and mission site representing Huntington Beach’s pioneer settlement and agricultural era. Information about Historic Wintersburg can be found at: www.HistoricWintersburg.blogspot.com. The Red Table Restaurant is in the Huntington Harbour Mall in northwest Huntington Beach, 16821 Algonquin St., Huntington Beach, CA 92649, (714) 846-4700. It is a popular gastropub featuring dishes like crab ceviche, Barbacoa beef tacos, and a variety of small plate dishes with warm cupcakes and broken banana cream pie to finish. Historic preservation tastes great!
