Join Hostelling International Boston and the United Nations Association of Greater Boston at a host of Boston-area restaurants in a celebration of food and culture! Cultural Café, a fun way to explore delicious food and meet new people, holds monthly meetups at restaurants in the Greater Boston area that serve up a variety of tasty cuisines.

We will enjoy a family-style meal mixing "greatest hits" with some lesser-known gems of that month's cuisine. Each restaurant will provide a cultural presentation or demonstration as part of the experience. Your meal, tip, and nonalcoholic beverages are included in the $25 price; alcoholic drinks must be paid for separately.

Cultural Café provides an opportunity for community members to experience what students experience in the Cultural Kitchen program. The setting is informal as guests gather to build community, share a delicious meal, learn about another culture, network with like-minded individuals and support a great cause!

As we grow, we hope to begin leveraging HI-Boston's new group kitchen and dining room for special cooking demonstrations and in-house cultural dinners.

Meetup members will need to pay for event tickets in advance. We will have a convenient online payment method or people can contact the group leader, Paul Kuhne at or 617-556-5312.
