As mentioned, at Alamo Drafthouse you’ll be able to order food directly to your seat, and the food will be a sort of tribute to NYC. Fernando Marulanda has been hired to run the kitchen – a chef who’s spent time at Tavern On The Green and Bouchon. The menu will be eclectic but simple, including a flatbread pizza with spiced lamb, tacos, a jerk chicken sandwich, and the ‘Williamsburger’ – a chuck and brisket burger. In terms of drinks, there will be beer (as the name ‘drafthouse’ suggests). Specifically, there will be craft beers from independent microbreweries from around the country, plus wine and cocktails if you so desire.
In terms of watching movies, Alamo Drafthouse will have seven screens showing both new Hollywood blockbusters as well as independent films. This Brooklyn location will also be the 25th Alamo Drafthouse around the country, so you can trust you’re in good hands. It began in Austin, TX with a theater with one screen, but has since expanded far beyond. They’re known for little things, like never allowing any advertisements to be shown on their screens and having a strict ‘no cellphone’ policy.
The official opening date is yet to be announced, but for now you can check out some of their pop-up events around the city, with screenings at locations such as The Brooklyn Brewery Tasting Room, so surely there will be more as time goes on.
