The Museum of Work & Culture is proud to launch the 7th Annual Poutine Indulgence Competition, beginning Wednesday, March 1, as part of the museum’s Francophonie celebrations.
Throughout the month of March, Poutine Passport holders are able to sample poutine (a traditional Québécois dish of French fries smothered in gravy and cheese curds) from ten restaurants across Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
This year’s restaurants include new entrants the Black (Woonsocket), Black Sheep (Providence), and Savini’s Pomodoro (Woonsocket) as well as returning favorites Friskie Fries (Providence and Johnston), Adeline’s Speakeasy Kitchen Bar (Cumberland), Ciro’s Tavern (Woonsocket), KG Kitchen Bar (Providence), Poutine Peddlers (Taunton, MA) Red’s Kitchen (Seekonk, MA) and Ming’s Sando Bar (Pawtucket).
Participants will have between March 20 and April 1 at midnight to vote for their favorite poutine. The winner will be announced at the Museum’s annual Salute to Spring event on Sunday, April 2.
Poutine Passports are still available throughout the month for $15 each or two for $25 at rihs.org. For takeout orders, please be sure to say you are participating in the poutine indulgence at time of order. For dine-in, please present your passport to your server when ordering. You must order at least $10 in food or drink to use this promotion in person.
