Restaurant Day – A food carnival when anyone can open a restaurant for a day
I am starting to get used to find out about great things and events just when they are done. I am trying to get better on this, and sometimes I realize just in time that I am about to lose one of those “you shouldn´t lose events”, like Mobilising Communities.
Unfortunately it was not the case with Restaurant Day, which happened this last saturday, 19th May. The next time it wont be missed and I will be holding one pop-up restaurant as well (I hope)!
Restaurant Day is a one-day carnival in favor of restaurant and food culture.
On Restaurant Day anyone can set up a restaurant, café or a bar for a day. It can be anywhere: at your home, at the office, on a street corner, in your garden or inner courtyard, at a park, or on the beach – only your imagination is the limit.
The quirkier the concept of your restaurant is, the better it attracts people. However oddities aren’t necessary. Good food and drinks at a nice place are enough – the most important is to create a restaurant that you’d like to visit yourself. After all, the idea of Restaurant Day is to have fun, share different restaurant experiences with other people and enjoy the our living environment together”.
There were two “restaurants” in Berlin, and I guess, if I could go back in time I would HAVE to go to both of them. One was “le vega”, which was an atelier space turned into a temporary restaurant, and at the other one, “Blick Burger“, you could have a Burger (with meat or vegetarian) on a roof balcony!
