Grossmont Theatre to serve high-end food and drink

Sample the new fare on Friday, October 7

“Would you like a glass of wine with your pickle?”
“Would you like a glass of wine with your pickle?”

What better way to cloud your vision of San Diego’s two largest theatre screens than by taking advantage of Grossmont Cinema’s new stocked bar?

As if movies weren’t intoxicating enough, this weekend Reading Cinemas Grossmont Center in La Mesa will begin selling liquor and fan-favorite foods. The public is invited to sample some of the new menu items this Friday between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. The tasting also offers guests a chance to win prizes such as movie tickets, concessions, and movie collectibles.

New electronic seats have yet to be installed, so if you feel the chair starting to recline, blame the booze.

In addition to a cash bar, new menu items include beef bourguignon, homemade gedempte fleisch (strictly kashruth!), haggis lasagna, pan-seared squab with wild rice, Rocky Mountain oysters, deep-fried tripe, “timpano à la Big Night,”and honey-baked clams.

Had you going, didn’t I? The real taste sensations are as follows: bacon grilled cheese or roasted turkey club sandwiches with chipotle mayo served on sourdough bread, potato chip crusted chicken tenders with Sriracha ketchup or buttermilk ranch dipping sauce, pizza, baked potato fries smothered with cheese sauce, and more.

The food at Grossmont’s sister theatre, the Angelika Film Center in Carmel Mountain, is off-the-charts delicious. No doubt the excellency will overlap. Let’s hope the quality of the movies matches the quality of the grub.
