People love great movies. They also love great meals. We combined the two for a series of unforgettable events. Each of the food-themed movies in this series is paired with a one-of-a-kind meal from the wildly talented, and much celebrated, chefs at the Alexander Hotel. That’s right, this year, we’ve teamed up with our pals at the Alexander to host this year’s Film to Fork series. Dinners will be served in the Market Table and movies will screen right next door in the IMOCA gallery.

The Search For General Tso
This mouthwateringly entertaining film travels the globe to unravel a captivating culinary mystery. General Tso’s chicken is a staple of Chinese-American cooking, and a ubiquitous presence on restaurant menus across the country. But just who was General Tso? And how did his chicken become emblematic of an entire national cuisine? Director Ian Cheney (King Corn & The City Dark) journeys from Shanghai to New York to the American Midwest and beyond to uncover the origins of this iconic dish, turning up surprising revelations and a host of humorous characters along the way. Told with the verve of a good detective story, The Search for General Tso is as much about food as it is a tale of the American immigrant experience. A Sundance Selects release from IFC Films.
Tickets are $50 - includes dinner, a glass of wine (if you are over 21!) & the movie. Doors open at 7pm, dinner is served at 7:30pm and the movie begins immediately following dinner.
In order to maintain appropriate food service levels, tickets for this screening must be purchased in advance by Monday, March 9th at 5 pm EST.
