Ben Berg’s house flooded waist-high last Sunday. After settling his family with friends, Berg’s next order of business was to open his popular steakhouse, B&B Butcher and Restaurant, as a feeding station for first responders.
He opened B&B Butchers with a special three-course menu with generous selections offered free to Houston’s heroes. The tableside service was offered throughout the weekend during which he had fed steak and salmon dinners to more than 200 police officers as of Saturday afternoon.
For the first responders who could not make it to the restaurant, Berg and his staff have continued to prepare and deliver hot meals — more than 2,000 through Saturday — to the sheriff’s department and the neighboring fire and police stations.
“Although I am exhausted trying to move forward after my own family’s losses, I am dedicated to feeding these brave men and women who have risked their lives for Houstonians, including myself, over the past several days,” Berg said in a statement. “I created this menu because I wanted the first responders who could get away to come in, sit down, be waited on, and just feel really appreciated.”
