I’ve been for brunch a few times but finally made a point of trying out the dinner menu at Foreign Cinema. The atmosphere is reason enough to stop by: spacious and split between an indoor and outdoor seating area, you’ll never feel like you’re dining on top of your neighbor.
The outside patio is dimly light with hanging bulbs, the focal point being a large white wall used as a projection screen for old films. Couple that with delicious grilled calamari, kale caesar salad and to-die-for fried chicken (an absolute must try) and you will quickly realize why Foreign Cinema has generated so much buzz around town.
