Restaurant Review: San Francisco, California

Foreign Cinema


Gayle Pirie and John Clarke took over Foreign Cinema in 2001, two years after it opened, and on most nights one of them can still be found on premises, making sure everything’s running smoothly. Stop in for a glass of bubbles and some oysters or sit down for one of the city’s best renditions of fried chicken. There’s always a film playing in the central courtyard, and there’s always something good to drink, whether a cocktail at the attached Laszlo bar, or one of many chenins on Shannon Tucker’s Loire-heavy wine list.
