Thanks Chef Eli and the Whole Alexander Team!
YUM! That was fun.
In its third year, Film to Fork is based on a simple concept: 1) dinner, and 2) a movie. People have been putting those two things together for a pretty long time now, but we thought we could bring something extra special to the table with a unique dining venue and specially curated film.
Every other Thursday in March and April, we’ll be heading out to the Alexander Hotel — our new home base for the series — to enjoy a three-course dinner in the hotel’s Market Table restaurant, before our screening. The best part? We’ve paired each film with a delicious meal that Chef Eli Laidlaw and his team dreamt up based on the film’s food theme.
Tickets are just $50 and include a three-course dinner, as well as a complimentary glass of beer or wine. We have a spectacular line-up on tap for this year’s series, with menus featuring cuisine from China, Italy, Hawaii and India.
Cocktails start at 7pm. Dinner will be served at 7:30pm. And the movie will begin immediately following dessert!
Date night anyone?
