Tenaya Darlington, also known as "Madame Fromage," and her brother André Darlington inspired a special one-night-only dinner at Kensington's Martha.
The Darlingtons, in collaboration with Turner Classic Movies, recently released a new book called "Movie Night Menus." In the book, 30 classic Hollywood films from the '30s through the '80s are matched with signature drinks and dishes that either appear in the film or are inspired by the film's setting and stars.
At Martha on Feb. 21, the classic Marilyn Monroe film "Some Like It Hot" will be screened with the "Movie Night Menus" accompanying dinner and drinks suggestions.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for the event, followed by Oscars Quizzo at 6 p.m. At 8 p.m., the movie will start and dinner will be served.
The menu includes a flight of Manhattans, a wedge salad, a whiskey-marinated flank steak and red devil cake for dessert. A vegan option is also available.
Tickets for the event are $35 for the prix-fixe dinner menu or $60 for an all-inclusive package, which includes drinks, dinner and a personally autographed book. To make reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're not interested in dinner, you can still watch "Some Like It Hot" at Martha. The screening is free, and complimentary fancy popcorn will be served.
