Pop Up Brunch

Raw:Almond has become a big hit on the Winnipeg winter dining scene. I’ve gone to three of the brunches and one of the dinners and I’ve gathered them all together here.

Over the weekend I was at the wedding of my friends James and Kendra.  The wedding was held just outside of Winnipeg in a wonderful outdoor setting, called Cloverdale Farm.  The ceremony itself was in the backyard of the house. The guests were seated on hay bales draped with cloth to keep the guests clothes clean.  Then came the wedding feast, which was held in an old haying barn that had been decorated for the occasion.  A special touch was…Continue readingWedding Feast in a Farmyard

Bodegoes – City Place Downstairs

NB: The Bodegoes location in the Exchange has found a new location. This location, in City Place, is still open and going strong.Bodegoes is the former Line-up and there is  a sign just outside the restaurant explaining why the owners chose to make the name change, as well as on their website.  This has become one of my favourite places to grab lunch if I want to go out and am in a hurry.  Situated on the main floor of…Continue readingBodegoes – City Place Downstairs
