Step through the metal doors at the Foreign Cinema on Mission Street and you’ll be in a world where food, art and film all brilliantly converge. I did so recently with my daughters and fellow foodies Olivia and Averell. We felt a sense of giddiness as we passed through the cavernous interior and onto the covered outside courtyard. The evening was warm, the lights were twinkling and the Maltese Falcon was about to be splashed across the silver screen.
A San Francisco Mission District restaurant for over 15 years, its inspired menu is drawn from California cuisine. With all the new and trendy restaurants springing up around it, Foreign CinemaForeign has held it’s own featuring organic and seasonal food in a hip Northern Californian setting. Peace, Love and Cinema!
What I am wearing: dress by Self-Portrait, shoes by Valentino, and bag by Balmain.
Like mother, like daughter
Having not dined there in over a year, I felt it was my solemn duty to test the cocktails. We found that the dry Vodka Martini with a twist and the ever pleasing Cosmopolitan were definately up to par. Olivia enjoyed a fresh squeezed lemonade.
