Chic, neo-industrial restaurant offers large outdoor patio with nightly film screenings and revamped French menu from former Zuni Café chefs. Main courses are fantastic. Dessert choices include beautifully composed cheese plates. Full bar, including a stellar cocktail called the Blood Orange (vodka, Campari, and orange juice).
We kicked off 2013 with a Bloody Mary and a side of slow-cooked brown sugar bacon at Foreign Cinema. Man, that bacon is good, thick-cut and sweet and salty at the same time, with these delicious sugary crispy bits at the ends. It was delicious... More »

And what better way to enjoy cuisine and company than to have the haunting notes of Vladimir Cosma's "Promenade Sentimentale" floating about as the intriguing "Diva" projects above our heads?
A successful first date is a dicey proposition. You have to be funny, but you can't be a clown. You have to be smart, but you can't be a know-it-all. And, above all, you have to pick the perfect restaurant. That's why Foreign Cinema is such an excellent venue. The food is moderately priced and tasty, and finding the Cinema's nondescript facade in the heart of the Mission will prove you know the lay of the land. You can break the ice with a couple of highballs at the connected Laszlo Bar. If... More »
The menu at this sophisticated Mission District spot changes frequently, as do the movies projected on the wall of the big outdoor patio, but you'll often find a mixed grill on the list, an orgy of flesh that encompasses several different kinds of meat, chosen for texture as well as flavor, with interesting accompaniments.
