Design Contract presents you a green restaurant. Manitoba is a restaurant in Montreal that was built taking into account the environment and also the sustainable and ecological questions.
Manitoba it’s a beautiful and creative new restaurant in Montreal that integrates foraging principles with stunning eco-conscious design. Created by Elisabeth Cardin and her business partner Simon Cantin, the restaurant has developed organically from a little shoot of an idea to an elegant space where diners can enjoy an inventive and delicious dish with the peace of mind that the ingredients are locally sourced; many of which even grow in the wild areas around the city. Situated in a converted carpentry studio in the northern Mile End neighbourhood, the design brings together recycled wood and an eclectic array of local recycled furniture to create an ambient space. After just a few short months, the restaurant is already causing quite a stir in the city, inviting the local community to get involved by bringing in wild ingredients to be served up by chef Chris Parasiuk and his team. Response has been huge, and Inhabitat had the privilege to sit down with the core members of Manitoba to talk about their experience, inspiration and ideas about sourcing from the wild.

Manitoba Restaurant intend to be pretty urban; not completely rustic, but real wood and things that could remind us of the forest. They have a long bar, and a kitchen that is open so that people could sit and talk.
The design is pretty basic. They already knew what kind of spirit they wanted in the place, and they didn’t want to put too much money into fine details. Their goal was to put more work into the food and keep the prices low. For instance they paid for the chairs 5 bucks! They’re from an old school!
One of the owners said and we quote: “I think people like the decor, and folks care more about the food they’re eating than the plates they are eating from.”
