Date Night: Notorious & The Occidental Grill & Seafood

[ 0 ] July 9, 2015 |


While the sky opened its wrath on the District, an intimate group of people sat inside the Occidental Grill & Seafood restaurant to enjoy dinner and a movie. Although the event was to be held outside on the patio, due to the rain we were led upstairs to the Monument Room, a beautiful space that looks out onto the Washington Monument. Yet, we weren’t there to revere in the view but to indulge in a three course menu while watching Notorious circa 1946. Directed by the acclaimed Alfred Hitchcock, Cary Grant and Ingrid Berman give a stellar post-war performance. As any good moviegoer knows, cellphones and definitely professional cameras aren’t allowed in a theater but  inspired by the spy film playing out in front of us, we snapped a few gritty (film noir-esque) shots of our meal that was excellently prepared by Executive Chef Rodney Scruggs. The next movie date is July 18th so be sure to book your reservation soon!
