Dinner and a Movie (and don’t forget the Tea!)

First Comes Yoga, then Comes Dinner and a Movie

First Comes Yoga, then Comes Dinner and a Movie

This week, I’m all about dinner and a movie at Yerba Buena.  I definitely watch what I eat.  I like to know that careful attention is paid not only to where the food is sourced from but how it is prepared.

So, when the Yerba Buena location opened, my movie nights came back at the Metreon’s theater because most of the food at the Metreon is just too quick, too loud and too who knows what, when, where and how.  I also enjoy a small jolt of caffeine if I am going to a movie at night.

A green tea is just right for me on those evenings.  I don’t like to rush through my meal and absolutely love to sit and slack for a while after eating.  It makes such a difference to be sitting in a movie after eating and continue the nourishing sensations of food tasting great on the tongue and feeling good in the belly and knowing it won’t disturb my sleep later on that evening.

Also, I have had the opportunity to experience Samovar, Yerba Buena during weekdays.  It is so clear that there was a need for a space to be created where folks could step back, relax and enjoy each other’s company in the midst of the hustle and bustle that is downtown San Francisco.  One day, I was attending a Caroline Myss conference and we only had one hour for lunch and a ten minute walk on either side but I knew that the Samovar oasis was what I needed.  As is with the other locations, the staff took great care of us and it was a busy day and the weather was amazing so we sat outside.

So, if you’re looking for healthy choices, a relaxing atmosphere at lunch, take a few extra minutes for yourself.  It will help your office mates for you to come back from lunch more relaxed and rejuvenated too.  But more important if you’re looking for a great place to have dinner and then head over to a movie, Samovar Yerba Buena is the spot.  Take your friends/family – tell your friends/family.

Namaste.
