Patou on Urbanspoon

312 Market Street Olde City

- Part Black Box theater part salon, part old Hollywood Club

Bread on the table? - Yes, doughy small wheat squares, served w/ pesto olive oil dipping sauce

What I ate - Prix Fix 4 course meal for $28! Served all evening on Wednesdays and before 6:30pm on Thursdays. The menu changes weekly. Two main choices are offered.

Starter: Lentil soup with bacon.
Thick and hearty. Almost an upscale baked beans and
2nd Course: Buttery pan fried scallops w/ small julienne chopped cold asparagus, a tasteful
Main Course: Pain seared Sushi grade Tuna (perfect pink center) served with fingerling
potatoes and chunks of avocado
Dessert: Miniature banana fritters with chocolate, dark chocolate and carmel sauces
decorating the plate. I inhaled them - delicious!

Service- Very good

Bathrooms- Ordinary decor, single, small, clean

Note -
The place was a tomb. Only one other couple dining in the whole place. The economy?

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
