Restaurant Day in Montreal: Grandma’s Kitchen Alley

Restaurant Day // definition:
A food carnival when anyone can open a restaurant for a day
Restaurant Day is a food carnival created by thousands of people organizing and visiting one-day restaurants worldwide. The idea of the day is to have fun, share new food experiences and enjoy our common living environments together. The event is facilitated by a team of volunteers who also maintain this website. All restaurateurs are personally responsible for all actions related to running their restaurants.

Montreal’s version of this amazing initiative will be held this Sunday August 17th.

Roots & Recipes will be opening a pop-up restaurant between noon and 5. “Grandma’s Kitchen Alley” (the alley between Clark and St-Urbain on Beaubien) will draw from the kitchen stories of our featured grandmothers from Italy, Iraq and beyond. Our alley-way will be transformed into a live storytelling/art space where we will invite you to share your own stories using different mediums.

Our food will be vegetarian-friendly, made with lots of love.


Menu:

‘Pizza Napoletana’ (fresh tomato sauce, parsley, parmesan) from the former Corona bakery – $4
Massafan (Iraqi almond-cardamom cookie) Ice Cream Sandwich with Rosewater Ice Cream  (gluten-free) – $4
Sufi Golden Ginger Juice – $3
Old-fashioned Chocolate Egg Cream with homemade chocolate syrup (dairy-free version available) $3

“Roots and Recipes” est un projet collaboratif qui a pour but de rassembler les recettes et les histoires de grand-parents venus des quatres-coins du monde à Montréal. Au sein des cuisines de nos grand-parents, nous filmons des recettes spéciales à chaque famille, que nous publions en web-series “Dishing Up The Past”. Nous organisons aussi des évènements multi-culturels, et intergénérationnels autour de la nourriture pour partager et créer une communauté vivante et enracinée.

Notre “restaurant” pop-up sera donc inspiré par les merveilleuses histoires de cuisine de nos grand-mères collectives d’Italie, d’Iraq et du Maroc. Notre ruelle (entre Clark et St-Urbain sur Beaubien) sera transformée pour quelques heures en un espace d’histoire orale et d’art ou vous serez invité à raconter votre histoire de votre façon, à l’aide de différents médium.

Notre menu est végétarien, fait avec beaucoup d’amour.
