Roger Sherman won accolades including Best Food Documentary Award at Sonoma Film Festival for The Restaurateur a bit of cinema verite following Danny Meyer working through the simultaneous 1998 openings of his restaurants Eleven Madison Park and Tabla.
I had the pleasure to attend a private screening of The Restaurateur back in May.
There were no plans at the time for a theater run.
I just learned from Roger that The Restaurateur will actually share a double bill with Bushwick, a detective flick directed by Luis Landivar, on August 29 and 30, 2010, at Village East Cinema in New York.
For your information:
The RESTAURATEUR will play immediately following “Bushwick” which runs 70 minutes and plays at 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, and 10pm.
The RESTAURATEUR begins at approximately: 2:10, 5:10, 8:10, 11:10
Roger Sherman has another food related project in the pipeline (trailer below).
Don't miss The Restaurateur week-end run if you are in New York.
