newportFILM may have just ended their Outdoor series with a creative bang, but they are never done sharing with the community a worthwhile documentary. As always, newportFILM has created an event & showing so fitting to the weekend's festivities, the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival.
Not to mention this film will be shown at the Rosecliff Ballroom, oh how divine...wait did we already note that Charles Devigne will be there too?!
ABOUT THE FILM
What makes a restaurant an “institution”? Is it something you can manufacture, or even copy? THE MISSING INGREDIENT follows Manhattan restaurateur Charles Devigne as he makes the bold decision to boost his struggling restaurant’s business by putting up the iconic zebra wallpaper made world-famous by the recently closed New York dining institution Gino’s. His choice sparks controversy when Gino’s previous owners, staff and loyal regulars, still hurting over Gino’s closing, catch wind of his intentions.
