The Civic Table Project is an experiment born out of our sense of responsibility to use hospitable spaces to explore the pressing and difficult questions of civic life in our communities.
We believe that shared food and drink is, and always has been, the most powerful vehicle for these conversations.
As neighborhood restaurants, Nopa and Nopalito are uniquely situated to engage with a changing city- with our farmers and purveyors, with the guests who walk through our doors, and with our staff, all of whom bring their experiences and histories to their work and our table every day.

Ultimately, it is up to all of us to have the conversations we want to be a part of.
The Civic Table Project donates 100% of ticket sales from each conversation to support a local organization working to create change in the arena of discussion. To date the project has raised over $23k to support:
