Foreign Cinema Finds Its Inner German for Oktoberfest Menus
Foreign Cinema (2534 Mission at 21st St.) is busting out the lederhosen and offering two Oktoberfest dinners, tomorrow night and again on Thursday, Oct. 29. Chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark are cooking special three-course meals designed as odes to Germany and the hearty, traditional cuisine it's known for. Tomorrow night's starter is a beet and cucumber salad, followed by Wiener schnitzel with fried potatoes, and spiced apple cake with praline and cider sauce. (The Oktoberfest dinners are available side-by-side with Foreign Cinema's regular menu.) A choice of Weihenstephaner Festbier or Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel is available if you want to go full Oktoberfest, beer-wise. Peeks at the lederhosen-clad host is included with the price of the meal.
