Restaurant Day sprouted from Helsinki, the capital of Finland, in 2011, growing mainly through social media and into a global movement for “food for all”. Restaurant Day is, indeed, extra-ordinary. Still, after two years of popping up inside people’s homes and backyards and onto the streets, the Day grows and gains momentum from up north in Iceland to down south of Columbia and everywhere in between. It is a festival for food from Ivalo, Singapore, Jerusalem, Poznan, San Diego, Lisbon and all the way to Yekaterinburg.
