Menus Plaisirs - Les Troisgros


Tue 3/26: 6:00p

A Special Evening for Foodies at Circle Cinema!

Foodies who enjoy practicing their craft in the kitchen as well as those who know their way around a wine list will have the opportunity to engage in a film experience beyond all others with a special, one-night screening of the four-hour “Menus-Plaisirs – les Troisgros” on March 26 at Circle Cinema.

The evening, which will begin at 6 p.m., will include food and wine served in the theater, provided by Polo Grill, Blue Moon Café, and Queenies of Tulsa.

The cost for this special evening is $35 for Circle members, $50 for non-members, and complimentary for members of the Circle Producer Society. Food and drink included with ticket price.

“This is a tour de force and a must-see for anyone who enjoys French food and wine,” said Brent Ortolani, executive director of the Circle Cinema. “If you enjoyed ‘The Taste of Things’ recently at the Circle, this is a film for you.”

“Menus-Plaisirs — Les Troisgros” (in French with English subtitles) centers on a dynasty of French chefs who live and work in a pastoral region in central France named Ouches, 65 miles west of Lyon. Amid rolling green hills and under the canopy of a century-old oak, the Troisgros family has a celebrated restaurant whose beginnings date back to 1930. The restaurant has held three Michelin stars for more than 50 years.

Much of the film takes place inside the bright, nature-inspired Le Bois Sans Feuilles, which is part of a larger complex set in a mid-19th-century estate that the family restored and includes a boutique hotel. Wiseman also pops into another Troisgros restaurant, Le Central, in the neighboring city of Roanne, making a more leisurely visit to a third, the nearby La Colline du Colombier, in the French countryside. The film is the 44th documentary film directed by 93-year-old Frederick Wisemen.
