Pop-up restaurants for Restaurant Day

Restaurant Day in Amsterdam.jpg
As you may have heard yesterday on our show, it's Restaurant Day!

This is an event where anyone can open a restaurant, just for a day.
It's part of a global movement that started in Finland a few years ago.
And Montreal has almost 60 participants now - a big jump from the first event in February.

First up - Charles Deluvio. He's a 25-year-old designer who's backing his younger brother who's doing the cooking. They're offering up a rarity in Montreal - Filipino food! (Williamcharles Co. They'll also be at an event in Ahuntsic next weekend.) 
Then Sara Cohen joins us from the Roots and Recipes team who are setting up "Grandma's Kitchen Alley." She joins host Sonali Karnick in studio.
