A 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community. A fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another.Written by
This movie is about 3 restaurants. I was watching it because I'm interested in food but only 1/3 restaurants actually fulfilled my desire. Two were about peoples lives running restaurants and quite miserable. We actually fast forwarded them and just watched the section about Grant Achatz. That was amazing seeing his molecular gastronomy his genius and passion. Would love to eat at Alinea or Next. 10/10 for that section. The other two literally made me upset and annoyed to watch. One about a Mexican couple whose restaurant was not going well. Instead of trying to improve, look at their marketing strategies, how to get more customers, how to make better food, they just prayed. And god didn't answer. The other was about a guy super helpful, creating a community in his restaurant and serving the most unhealthy looking food ever. Chicken fried chicken, steak, etc. How can you make a doco about this unhealthy food? If you like food, just watch Achatz. If you like drama watch all 3.
