People who purchase Amina's chicken basket entree, a $26 meal that includes hand-cut fries, soul slaw and sweet n' sassy sauce, can buy $5 glasses of Prosecco. 

All proceeds from Prosecco sales will go to the African American Museum. The city built the museum, at 104 Chestnut St., in 1976 as part of the United States' bicentennial celebration. It became the first museum funded by a municipality to preserve and exhibit the heritage of African Americans.

"We are a Philadelphia restaurant serving southern cuisine which utilizes African ingredients and themes," Amina owner Felicia Wilson said in a press release. "We were looking for an initiative that could both drive traffic to the restaurant and support an African American cause during one of the slowest times in the restaurant business, so we decided that raising money and awareness for the African American Museum, which is local treasure, was a no-brainer."

For the first time since it opened in May, the restaurant will allow guests to ask for its signature fried chicken to be topped with the Nigerian Hot spices created by Amina's chef/partner Darryl Harmon.
