Watch the Trailer For Tasting Menu, A New Foodie Rom-Com From Spain

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 10:30 AM


Well, the new Spanish flick Tasting Menu has come up with a brilliant plot for a food-themed rom-com. It's the last night at El Bulli-like restaurant Chakula, the "best restaurant in the world," and an attractive couple have a table booked at the memorable meal. The only problem? They made their reservation a year before, and have since broken up. Sounds like a delicious premise to us.

The Magic of Making Food Look Good on Television

We're assuming that the two will find that the path to true love is indeed through the stomach, but looking forward to watching what sounds like a really awkward situation -- not to mention drooling over all the food in the film.

Check out the trailer here:

It's unclear when the film will be released in the U.S. -- it's coming out in Spain June 14, and Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. rights, according to Deadline. Here's hoping it comes to Netflix in a timely fashion.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
