My thoughts on the Atlanta food scene, with occasional forays into the world beyond. We talk about both restaurant reviews and recipes.

The Avengers gave me the impetus I needed to visit Cinebistro. It's one of those movie-and-a-meal places and definitely going for the upscale market. The lobby is well-decorated and has an extensive bar. They will also serve bar items to you with your meal in the theater.
Their system is a little different from the one used by Movie Tavern. At Cinebisto all the table service happens before the movie starts. After the lights go down, you can still go to the bar and order food and drinks. (And don't worry, they have popcorn and candy, too.) Overall the service was very good. My only very minor complaint was with the table, which was a little small for my taste. It made me feel like I was flying coach.
In a fit of healthiness, I went for the veggie burger. I do think that a veggie burger is a pretty good test for a kitchen---an unimaginative one doesn't taste like much of anything. This one was a very good specimen with several different flavors. The cheese, beans, and spices all worked together while still remaining distinct. The fries were pretty good, too.
The first three movie trailers I saw all featured Bruce Willis. It promises to be a long summer...
