A Private Screening of Our Favorite Food Movie
Then we serve the feast from the film
Friday, August 12th
Our favorite food film of all time, Big Night, came out in 1996. A cult classic, it's a hysterical account of the sometimes heated relationship of two brothers who open a very authentic Italian restaurant in not-so-worldly New Jersey of the 1950's. The cast is stunning. The music, the dialogue, the cinematography, is all just perfect. At the center of it all though, is the food: A huge feast and all the love and care and drama that goes into it.
We will screen the film in the private screening room at The Heldrich across the street, beginning at 6:30, truffled popcorn included. Immediately afterwards, we will recreate the feast from the film in the dining room of Catherine Lombardi. We will dine at large communal tables and great fun will be had by all.
This year, we've partnered with the folks at Farnese Vini in Southern Italy. This dynamic group is producing some remarkable and rule-bending country wines that are absolutely delicious and stunning values. We will offer a complimentary tasting of the Farnese portfolio of wines before the film (any time between 5:30-6:25).
