Immigrant Food

Our restaurant celebrates America’s story — the story of immigrants. Immigration is the special mix of people and cultures that made America great...again and again.

Thanks for joining us. Let’s unite at the table.

Peter commemorated the 10th anniversary of his mother’s death in 2018. His mother and father were both immigrants, but his mother was a chain immigrant, brought to America by her aunt. The anniversary of his mom’s passing coincided with a shocking surge of negative rhetoric against immigrants.

That’s when the idea of Immigrant Food began to form. It’s a restaurant that celebrates the successes of past immigrants and positively impacts today’s immigrants who – like Gerda and Edmund, Peter’s parents– have come to America to remake their lives. This is our small contribution to the fight against a new intolerance in America.
