Nitehawk teams up with Nom Wah Tea Parlor for its first Asian Film Feast

Christina Izzo

Nitehawk Cinema's bimonthly Film Feast series is already a winning mash-up of meals and movies, but this month's lineup is particularly awesome-sounding: The theater's executive chef Kurt Applegate is teaming up with Nom Wah Tea Parlor's chef-owner Wilson Tang to create an Asian-inspired spread to complement a screening of 1986 cult favorite Big Trouble in Little China. And if that's not enough, the five-course menu, ranging from steamed dumplings to beef-shank lo mein, will be paired with beers from Lagunitas. 

Tickets for the Film Feast—which will take place on Tuesday, April 18 at 7:15pm—are $75 each and are on sale today on Nitehawk's website. Check out the full menu below:
