On Monday, March 27th, Yauatcha Houston played host to an intimate private dinner for the Rothko Chapel’s Cultural Ambassador Lynn Wyatt just two days before the restaurant opened in the Galleria’s newly built “jewel box.”

Yauatcha Houston is partnering with the Rothko Chapel to become a long-term supporter of the nondenominational center for contemplation.  With a diverse collection of world-class hospitality brands across North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia, Yauatcha’s parent company Hakkasan Group is enthusiastic and well positioned to help the ecumenical center’s mission to promote international, cultural, religious and philosophical exchanges.

The company will kick off its newly formed partnership with a sizeable donation to the Rothko Chapel’s gala – dubbed “A Grand Occasion” – taking place at The Astorian on May 11th honoring Lynn Wyatt and Sissy Farenthood, chaired by Lori Cohen & Christopher Rothko and Gayle & Mike DeGeurin. Funds raised by the Grand Occasion gala will support the Chapel’s rich program offerings and help maintain the landmark building and grounds.
