Indian Dinner and Movie: The Lunchbox
May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A seated dinner with a movie in our casual dining room. Guests are welcome to BYOB wine and beer; we will also have bottles for sale.
Four years ago, our teachers Stacie Dong, Simran Singh, and Roop Soni of A Little Yumminess were inspired by the Indian film, The Lunchbox, to create a classic Indian lunchbox menu to accompany our screening of the film. This event has become a yearly tradition; the movie feels timeless, is emotionally touching, and always make us marvel at food’s ability to bring two lonely people together. While watching the characters eat their lunchboxes, you’ll be served a heaping plate of food made with love!
*Menu subject to change, but will stay vegetarian and very tasty!
Middle class housewife Ila is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that this new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day’s lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery.
