Women’s History Month Is Here
March is here, it’s Women’s History Month, and we are excited to celebrate the women who are such a crucial part of Gene & Georgetti. From our roots to current day, women have played a vital role here at G&G. We are a women-owned and operated restaurant and are so proud of that.
Third-generation managing partner Michelle Durpetti shares that while G&G was founded by the two men whose name is on the door, G&G was built by women. Her grandmother was the first accountant, her mother is involved in every decision made, and the women who make up their team are a definitive part of their continued evolution.

Join us all month long & help us support Women for Women International
To mark the month-long celebration of women, a portion of our proceeds will be going to Women for Women, a UK-based organization that helps women survivors of war and conflict.
Women for Women International invests where inequality is greatest by helping women who are forgotten — the women survivors of war and conflict.
Through Women for Women International’s Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Program, women learn the skills they need to rebuild their families and communities. In Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Sudan, women who join the program connect with each other to form support networks. They learn to earn an income and save money, gain knowledge and resources to care for their families and defend their rights. Women use their power together, passing it on to neighbors and their children for lasting change. Since 1993, the organization has invested in the power of over 500,000 women, supporting them to use their voices and create a ripple effect that makes the world more equal, peaceful, and prosperous.
