Menus-Plaisirs Les Troisgros

Opens on December 1

Director: Frederick Wiseman Run Time: 240 min. Release Year: 2023 Language: French

Synopsis: Frederick Wiseman’s 44th documentary takes us to Central France and Troisgros — a Michelin 3-star restaurant owned and operated by the same family for four generations, and destination for gastronomes from around the world. Behind the scenes, we are privy to passionate debates among the head chefs (a father and his two sons) about texture, color, and depth of flavors; visits to a bounteous produce farm, a local vineyard, and a massive cheese cave (where “each cheese has its moment of truth”); and waitstaff meetings focused on individualized customer preferences and food plating at a performance-art level. In his trademark style, Wiseman patiently illuminates the restless creativity of this culinary family as they experiment with dishes, methods, and ingredients — keeping their haute cuisine anchored in tradition while brilliantly evolving.

Critic Quotes: “The most delicious excuse to spend four hours in a theater has got to be this new doc from the legendary Frederick Wiseman that takes a look at the workings of a family-owned three-Michelin-star restaurant in central France.” New York Magazine
