Tuesday, April 19, Seviche, 1538 Bardstown Rd., will show the 2014 film “The Hundred-Foot Journey” starring Helen Mirren in the restaurant’s private dining room. A dinner with a menu based on the foods suggested by the movie will be served during the showing.
The story is centered on an Indian family who moves to France and opens a restaurant across the street from a Michelin-starred French restaurant. A sort of war erupts between the two establishments, until, of course, love and a shared love of food bring everything to a happy conclusion.
Showtime is 6 p.m. The dinner menu will include a broth flavored with lime, coriander and garam masala; a truffle omelette; potato samosa with onion chutney; boeuf bourguignon; and apple tarte tatin with cardamon ice cream.
Cost for dinner, drink pairings and movie will be $75. Call (502) 473-8560, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cognoscenti have probably booked up these excellent value special dinners that start tomorrow, but maybe, just maybe, there are still some seats available.

The wines are almost always very affordable – good values that may be not so well known. There is always something new to learn at these evenings, about food or about wine or about the other convivial diners. If you haven’t been trying a wine dinner, you really should.
