WHAT IS OLIO, KULINARYA & PAMANGAN?
I suppose it is a bit confusing, isn't it? Pamangan is the name of the pop-up Ellie started, under the umbrella Kulinarya. Olio is the worker co-op that owns and operates Tanám. Though Ellie had been running the pop-up in parallel to her commitment to Olio, when the opportunity to open a space came up, it became clear to all of us that the alignment was there with respect to values, culture and goals.
WE'RE A COMMUNITY GROUP AND NEED SPACE.
Our space will be humble, but it can be available for some uses (e.g. small meetings). We can also connect you to a number of other spaces. Send us a note.
WHEN DOES TANÁM OPEN?
Good question -- we're still building the space, but have a twinkling hope that our soft opening will happen when it's still warm out!
With so many people who have made this restaurant possible with individual contributions, our soft opening is our HUGE thank you to them. If you want to be there day one AND want to be part of the community that is building this restaurant together, check out the options we have to do so here. We recommend pre-buying your tab on Credibles!
WILL THE SPACE AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATE EVENTS?
Yes. Send us a note.
I'm AN ARTIST AND HAVE A GREAT IDEA. HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
Send us a note. We love cool ideas, but it's worth noting that we feature work that is collaborative and we use the space to prioritize the voices and work of the underrepresented. If you want to support those artists, we'd be happy to connect you when it seems there could be a good fit.
PRICE & ACCESSIBILITY
The ticket price includes the cost of labor and taxes (of which nearly 50% of our tickets go to) in a way that most menus don't; and the price we set reflects the real cost of our commitment to people and to the planet. No creator (chef, artist, bartender) should be expected to labor for little to no compensation, and many conventionally grown ingredients purchased at a low price, point to a love for cheap labor and exploitation. Additionally, our dining experiences often take months of coordination and many days of labor to produce.
That being said, when we meet a set threshold of ticket revenue, we become able to offer tickets at a reduced rate to community members for whom this price is a hardship. We recognize these people as any of the following:
- People who have supported our work in the past or who belong to organizations with a relationship to Olio
- People with whom we personally have a current relationship
- Activists, public servants and youth identified by either of the above
If you are a community member who would like to be informed of reduced rate tickets as they become available, please complete this form.
If you are a community member who has the means to community members, please do so through our ticket website and email Ellie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
