Having dinner at Nook and catching a movie just got better. The venerable Laemmle Royal theater, a mere two blocks from us, reopened this week after a thorough makeover! The theater now boasts three screens, digital projection, and stadium seating. The lobby is beautiful, and early adopters have told me that the new seats are very comfortable. The Laemmle theater chain is a family owned business and has been committed to exhibiting quality films since 1938. Next time you’re thinking of dinner and a movie, think of Nook and the Laemmle Royal. We go together like E.M. Forster and Merchant Ivory!
We’ve got a duo of your favorite sides and a beloved dessert to assist you in your holiday entertaining this year.

And few things can elevate the joviality like our legendary Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding for $30. Half pans feed 8 to 10. If you want in, please order by Friday, December 21st.
People have called it a buttery holiday miracle. Nothing warms the soul and spirit quite like it. It’s Hot Buttered Rum I’m referring to, of course. We’re serving it up on these “harsh” L.A. Winter nights to comfort you in Nook style. The unspecified number of spices in Chef James’ secret butter recipe add up to a teeming cup of Holiday cheer. Get delighted
