What to Know
- For a limited time Eminem’s Detroit restaurant Mom’s Spaghetti is serving up pasta plates in SoHo to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the hit song that inspired the eatery’s name.
- Since the pop-up is also a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of “8 Mile” there will be fan experiences based on the movie. Exclusive merchandise will also be available for sale.
- Having launched Thursday, the pop-up, which is located at 131 Greene St., will run until Nov. 20.
To commemorate 8 Mile’s 20th anniversary, Eminem is opening a Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant in New York.
On November 10, 11, 16, 17, and 18 from 2 to 9 p.m. and on November 12, 13, 19, and 20 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Detroit-born concept will be open for business at the Shopify store in New York’s SoHo area.
The iconic cardboard container of spaghetti (with or without meatballs) and recreations of the 8 Mile set will be available for fans to purchase. There will be 8 Mile-themed merchandise for sale, along with other records on vinyl.
After a successful pop-up run in 2017, Mom’s Spaghetti settled into its new downtown Detroit location in September 2021. Paul Rosenberg, Em’s manager, said in a statement, “We’ve had a lot of fun putting this project together with the folks at Union Joints, and the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive.”
The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom’s Spaghetti spot that would be open all year. “We are really pleased to announce the arrival of the walk-up restaurant and adjacent upstairs store, called The Trailer, where fans can experience a uniquely curated environment and obtain merchandise and other items from Eminem and his new pasta operation.”
