Why You Should Go See John's of 12th Street, a Restaurant Documentary

John's of 12th Street
Directed by Vanessa McDonnell
Playing November 12, 16, 22, 28, and 30
Spectacle (124 South 3rd Street, Brooklyn)

Vanessa McDonnell's John's of 12th Street, a warm, affectionate sketch of the eponymous East Village restaurant, is the kind of insistently low-key documentary in which a mild argument between co-owner Nick Sitnycky and a handyman over where to get a stopper for the front door constitutes a relatively heated moment. A mere hour long, the movie could stand to be more discerning with its material: Where some of the staff's spontaneous asides are engaging (one terrific scene has two off-screen cooks conversing in Spanish about charter schools, the camera fixed on their busy hands), others (like one patron's Madonna story) are arguably long-winded to a fault.

Categories: Events

Last night, Javier Goya, Javier Mayor, and David Alfonso -- the three chefs behind TriCiclo, a buzzy restaurant in Madrid -- descended upon Louro's burners. From there, in collaboration with Sarah Simmons's City Grit pop-ups, they put out five courses of dishes that represent their country and their restaurant. There was a bracing salad of mollusks, seaweed, and kelp. Then came a garlic soup, the broth murky and rich with egg yolk and pancetta crumble. Striped bass pooled in an herbaceous broth preceded a chicken leg coated in a sauce reminiscent of mole; the meal finished with bright fruits speckled with verdant herbs.
