Dinner and a Movie at LACMA's New RED Series

Taking inspiration from the Stanley Kubrick exhibition and film retrospective, the Patina Group launches RED this weekend, a new pop-up dinner series with Jason Fullilove (DaVinci, Campanile, Tar Pit, Patina Catering) and of a few of his friend guest chefs. The dinners are held in the LACMA Cafe, which is close to the Bing Theater, and each has a special theme depending on which film is shown that night.

First up is Spartacus on Friday (Nov. 16), which means a Roman-inspired menu, of course: crispy artichokes with speck, arugula and pecornio chesse; fig-stuffed pork loin with braised pork cheek, fennel puree, chanterelles and Persian shelling beans; and pear tart with fenugreek and quince. On Saturday night (Nov. 17), the "forbidden feast" menu to go along with Lolita was inspired by Europe, New England and the Midwest: chicken liver mousse with poached apples and foccacia tuilles; chiken stuffed with chestnuts and cranberry with chicken-skin cracklings; and an apple crumble.

Tickets are $60 per person and includes the three-course meal, movie ticket, tax and gratuity. Wine and other beverages cost extra. Seating is limited and reservations are required - call 323-377-2698 or email red@patinagroup for more info.
