David Burke Group's Trilogy to Debut at Silverspot Cinemas Hospitality company David Burke Group, New York, raised the curtain on an original new concept developed in partnership with Silverspot Cinemas in June. Aptly named Trilogy, the concept brings together "flm, fare and libations" for moviegoers and culinary enthusiasts alike. The frst Trilogy is in Silverspot's Coconut Creek, Fla., location. A second is set to open this August at the theater chain's Chapel Hill, N.C., location. In addition to developing the Trilogy concept, which focuses on inventive American cuisine, David Burke Group will oversee the theatre's overall food and beverage program. The company describes Trilogy as "a chic and contemporary American café featuring innovative twists on classic dishes." It will offer a variety of culinary options, including a full-service restaurant with patio, designed by New York-based Glen & Co.; modern concessions with locally curated specialty items; and an elegant lounge and premium bar with a selection of appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, entrees and sweets. With 120 seats, the spacious restaurant, bar and lounge feature a combination of wood-lined walls and wooden chairs. Lighting casts an orange-accented glow to the surfaces, trans- forming the space's modern and sleek design into an inviting and warm atmosphere. Wood shelving divides the spaces to create a sense of coziness while also showcasing an array of modern kitchen gadgets that add to the American café concept. CHICAGO'S LOU MALNATI'S KEEPS RISING Iconic Chicago pizzeria chain Lou Malnati's, founded in 1971, continues to fnd avenues for new growth in its home city. The 41-unit family-owned company opened its newest location in May in Chicago's vibrant Lincoln Square neighborhood. The 172- seat restaurant's decor consists of muted blues, greens and oranges and the neon sign out front evokes a retro atmosphere. Inside, a wall of windows and a "living wall" flled with plants bring the feel of the outdoors into the restaurant year-round while retractable glass doors al- low for the dining room to open up onto a large outdoor patio in warm weather.
