Mediterranean Fare & A Movie In Union Square
It’s a simple night for simple pleasures in Union Square with tasty and healthy Mediterranean food at Mint Kitchen by Israeli chef and TV personality Erez Komarovsky. With fresh, carefully sourced ingredients, enjoy plates like the chicken breast with sesame rub, or falafel-crusted salmon. Pair dinner with a gazoz, an old-fashioned Israeli soda with fresh fruit (cucumber, strawberry or hibiscus) and herbs and you’re set. Plus you can feel extra good about what you eat—for every ten meals ordered, Mint provides a healthy meal for a family in need through a partnership with City Harvest.
After dinner, enjoy a film at the neighborhood hidden gem Cinema Village. Built in 1963, this independent cinema spot will bring up feelings of nostalgia for times long past, like when a large movie theater popcorn cost $6 (which BTW it still does here). A cozy, intimate theater with three screens, you can see vintage and cult classics, along with contemporary critical favorites and indie sleepers. You’ll love supporting this neighborhood staple that has withstood the test of time.
