Movies & Meals at Left Bank: NYC

Starting July 6, Greenwich Village landmarked restaurant, Left Bank, will be screening movies on Sundays until the end of August to celebrate the New York summer. A line-up of beloved classics including The African Queen, Stand By Me and Raiders of the Lost Ark will be shown.

Chef Laurence Edelman will serve special dishes to compliment each of the films. First up will be Jaws. Inspired by the fictional Amity Island, the menu will feature choices such as lobster rolls, baked stuffed clams and oysters on the halfshell.  And they’re mixing specialty cocktails like the Great White Russian and Blood in the Water to get us started!

No admission fee is required. Space will be on a first come, first served basis. Movies will begin promptly at 8:15PM.  And they’re popping seasoned popcorn as well.
