A pop-up is on its way to the heart of Boston, and it will feature a beloved food item that is particularly north of the border.
According to a press release, the Poutinerie by Air Canada pop-up is coming to 267 Washington Street in Downtown Crossing, debuting on Thursday, October 3 and running through Sunday, October 13. The poutine pop-up, which will be open from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM daily, will offer such options as a classic Montreal-style poutine (fries, cheese curds, and gravy), a Toronto version called "The North" (sharp cheddar cheese instead of curds and beer-braised pork added), and versions with international influences including Paris "'Tine de Triomphe" (fries, duck confit, creme de brie, black pepper), Sao Paulo "Sampa" (thick-cut fries, grilled hanger steak, chimichurri), Tokyo "The Shibu-yeah!" (thick-cut fries, ground pork, ponzu and sesame sauce, pickled daikon or shredded carrot, ginger), and others. Boston is the fourth city to host Poutinerie by Air Canada, with the pop-up previously coming to Washington, DC, London, and Denver.
Proceeds from the Poutinerie by Air Canada pop-up will benefit About Fresh, a Boston-based nonprofit that helps bring healthy food to those in need.
