Small World – The Google Translate Restaurant
Restaurant that uses foreign languages only, for you to translate

In celebration of Google Translate’s 10th anniversary, we opened an interactive pop-up restaurant in New York City.

For 4 days, the restaurant served, for free, an amazing line-up of multi-cultural dishes prepared by international chefs. The catch was that everything on the menu was written in a foreign language and that the hosts spoke in different languages. This meant that the guests had to download the Google Translate App to make their orders.

Reservations were filled within an hour after opening, resulting in several hundreds of guests enjoying a multi-cultural, multi-culinary experience, along with a unique demonstration of the power of Google Translate.
