Gayle Pirie As one of San Francisco's most enduring restaurants, Foreign Cinema has remained a magical destination for local, national, and international visitors. For the last 18 years, Co-Executive Chefs and Owners Gayle Pirie and John Clark’s collective visions have woven food, wine, cocktails, film, and art into one harmonious ambience. Each day, the menu is written with the same care that goes into the sourcing of their ingredients. On the horizon for Foreign Cinema is a cookbook to be published in May 2018 and a forthcoming wine bar.
