The Upper East Side just got classier (if that was even possible). CMX CinéBistro introduces a fine dining restaurant that also features movies. Chef Isaac emphasized that it was the food that guests should come for.
This food and drink focused experience boasts 2 floors of theaters and a state of the art kitchen facility. The kitchen is strategically placed to reduce any lead time that the food may take to reach the guests enjoying the movie. This allows them to maintain high class quality of their dishes that were all created from scratch. Some delectable items on the menu included the New Zealand farmed buttery salmon and the innovative chicken and churros, among many more mouth watering dishes all creatively presented.
If you are already salivating, there’s more. The staff carefully selected their wines that are paired with the dishes. These wines, red, white or rosé come from all around the world. In addition to this selection of wine, a professional mixologist has curated an amazingly unique range of cocktails to enjoy!
This is part of the reason why they have a strict 21+ only rule after 6PM. This is implemented, in order to fully enjoy these alcoholic beverages and maintain the exclusivity and classy atmosphere it has to offer.
This theater perfectly represents New York, as this is the city where people truly understand and appreciate exceptional food and drinks.
The team at CMX CinéBistro urges that guests arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of the movie. Now you may be wondering why. It is in order for the guests to fully enjoy the food and beverage experience. As other establishments that offer a similar service often have their servers interrupting the movie watching. This is obviously disruptive, hence, they wanted to enforce a policy to allow for a memorable night at the movies! However, the staff that worked at CMX were extremely hospitable, friendly, engaged and proactive. They definitely are the well tied bow on a great package deal.
New Yorkers will flock to be pampered. The space is 45000 square feet with 6 screens, 336 reclining seats and a 7.1 surround sound system. It is guaranteed that you’re going to be transported into another realm.
CMX strives to position this experience as a restaurant that has movies, rather than a movie that has food available. It’s a New York thing…
