The PuSH International Performing Arts festival not only showcases the best of Canadian artists, but the youngest ones as well.

What is Eat the Street?

Enjoy a delicious meal with Eat the Street while being entertained by the most brutally honest and hilarious Canadians of all—children.

This refreshing show will spotlight students from grades five and six from Bridgeview Elementary school. They will come around to each of the restaurants listed below to give their professional, unbiased opinions on every single aspect of the restaurant from the waiters to the food and even the washrooms.

The show is included with the cost of your meal.

An official Eat the Street Award Ceremony takes place on Feb. 4, 2012 at the Roundhouse Community Centre at 2 p.m. At the ceremony, the restaurants will be awarded with titles for things such as “the Best overall restaurant” to “the Coolest chef” and “the Scariest washroom.”
