Chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark’s collective visions weave food, wine, cocktails, film, and art gallery into one harmonious ambiance. In recognition of 15 years of distinctive service and community stewardship, September 18th was proclaimed “Foreign Cinema Day” in San Francisco. As San Francisco’s most enduring dining center since 1999, Foreign Cinema has remained a magical destination for local, national, and international visitors and has been a San Francisco Chronicle “Top 100 Restaurant” for seventeen consecutive years.

John Clark, Co-founder, and his team held their 19th annual party this past September benefiting the San Francisco Women’s Building. This year, they were joined by their co-host and newest neighbor on the block, Sherwood Design Engineers.

The event was a radiant, colorful, multi-level spectacle that featured celebratory food and signature libations from Foreign Cinema, La Cocina, and Mission Boricua.

The very lively interactive entertainment and live performances featured the Velocity Circus, the Extra Action Marching Band, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and more from the local arts community.
