David Burke Group to open first of 3 theater restaurants

David Burke Group is preparing to open the first of three restaurant-bar-concessions combos to be housed in movie theaters operated by Silverspot Cinemas.

The eating and drinking facilities, called Trilogy, was developed for Silverspot. The prototype will feature a 120-seat restaurant,  a bar described by DBG as “elegant” and concessions featuring locally popular specialties. The takeaway options were developed to be eaten in theater seats while a patron is watching a film.

The restaurant is intended to serve both movie patrons and guests who are visiting the complex just for a meal. Its menu will feature “innovative twists on classic dishes,” according to DBG. It cites such examples as Tuna Tartare Wontons, a lobster roll, sliders and Angry Shrimp Fajitas. 

The bar menu will include cocktails with a cinema theme, with names like the Seabiscuit Julep and A Clockwork Mango.

The first Trilogy is scheduled to open in the Coconut Creek, Fla., Silverspot theater on June 18, followed by an outpost in Chapel Hill, N.C. in August.

DBG, founded by famed New York City chef David Burke, operates such high-end restaurants as David Burke Kitchen, Fishtail and David Burke’s Primehouse.
