Confessions of a Shopaholic might be worthy of popcorn and
M&Ms, but we thought our screening of Che at Ex-Centris
should be paired with more sophisticated fare.
For pre-movie nosh, we booked a table at Café Méliès where Executive
Chef José Rodriguezs new
menu features plate after plate of foodie perfection. We flipped for
the Quebec foie gras served with apple star anise chutney ($18), and the
Kobe beef burger with Serrano ham and carmelized onions ($20) put to
shame our regular choice of concession stand hotdogs.
As for the Tanzanian dark chocolate tart ($8)it had us seeing stars.
