Canada’s coolest restaurant


The term frozen food has new meaning in Manitoba. RAW: Almond, a pop-up restaurant at the fork of the Assiniboine and Red rivers in Winnipeg, returns for a mid-winter run Jan. 24 – Feb. 13, 2014. As the wind howls, ardent foodies don down-filled parkas, fur aviator caps, and sub-zero boots to dine on ice. In its second year, Raw: Almond claims to be the only pop-up restaurant of its kind in North America. This year includes a larger dining tent with seating for 30 and a tasting lounge for 10. One wall of the tent will screen videos filmed during construction of the restaurant on ice. Eleven of Winnipeg’s top chefs will take the helm in the kitchen for two nights each. A walk-up weekend brunch will also be served.  Dinner tickets are $100 each. Tasting bar tickets are $45 each. (
