RAISE Restaurants Community Manager

Economic Security Team



Andrea Borgen Abdallah is a mission-driven hospitality consultant focused on the intersection of restaurants, social justice, and public policy. She owned a small restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles, barcito, for 6 years, where she often advocated for an improvement in wages, benefits and standards in the hospitality industry. Abdallah was named a 2016 Eater Young Gun, and has been featured on Zagat Los Angeles’ 30 under 30. She closed barcito in June 2021, with a desire to pursue this advocacy work full-time. She is currently the Community Manager for RAISE High Road Restaurants, a subsidiary of One Fair Wage, focused on eliminating the tipped minimum wage, and improving racial, gender and wage equity in the restaurant sector.
