Venue Info

Cinephiles find a temple at the Lower East Side's Metrograph, an arthouse cinema/restaurant complex whose film program weds the mainstream and the obscure. The restaurant portion of the space, The Commissary, is inspired by the industry hotspots of Hollywood's glam golden age and serves unfussy dishes like steak frites and spaghetti pomodoro. A cocktail and small plates menu (the so-called Writer's Menu) features drinks named after classic films (like the the vodka-based Zhivago and the mezcal-and-tequila Night of the Iguana) plus fancy snacks like chicken liver paté and brie with boursin. If you're looking for something more simple, The Metrograph's concession stand offers imported chocolates, organic snack bars, and Haribo gummies -- and is still fancier than your typical popcorn stop.
