Restaurants for a day

Restaurant day in Finland 2014.jpg
Montreal has joined a global grass-roots movement that gives anyone who likes to cook the chance to open their own restaurant. 

Just for a day. 

It's called Restaurant Day and it started in Finland three years ago. Montreal now has more than 50 pop-up restaurants opening tomorrow. They'll be in parks, on streets, and outside people's homes. 

We invited the local founder of the culinary carnival, Frédérik-Toran Nissen, to tell us how it works.
