Foreign Cinema Review
Forget popcorn. In this hip, loftlike space "dinner and a movie" become one joyous event. Classic films like René Clément's noirish 1960 Purple Noon and Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1990 Blue are projected on a wall in a large inner courtyard while you're served perfectly shucked oysters on the half shell, warm brandade, house-cured sardines, chef-owners' Gayle Pirie and John Clark's excellent fried chicken, bavette steak, or seafood stew from the dinner menu; or a Dungeness crab panino or chicken-liver pâté from the bar bites menu. Avid filmgoers should keep in mind that it's really more about dining than movie watching here. Kids aren't forgotten, with celery and carrot sticks, pasta with butter and cheese, and two scoops of ice cream for just $7. The adjacent two-level Laszlo Bar has well-executed cocktails and nightly DJs, and the weekend brunch brings throngs of people fighting for a spot on the patio for some of the city's best egg dishes and Bloody Marys.
