The high-in-demand wintry pop-up restaurant Manitobans have come to love is branching out to three separate locations this season.
RAW:almond is extending its table to include Gimli, Winnipeg and Churchill as it marks its sixth year.
“We created RAW:almond as a place to bring people together to meet, learn, love and share a Canadian experience like no other. We are excited to take the RAW dining concept across Manitoba and share the culinary tradition we’ve created in Winnipeg with new communities,” said deer + almond chef and owner, Mandel Hitzer.
Along with designer Joe Kalturnyk, each of the three pop-ups will be created through a unique architectural concept to house the 16 visiting chefs.
