Best Pre-Movie Meal 2006. What has been more embraced by couples for a night out than dinner and movie? The proximity of Chef Philip McGrath's elegant yet unpretentious Iron Horse Grill to the Jacob Burns Film Center makes the 60-seat eatery the choice to begin an evening where all your senses are stimulated. Well-presented, polished, and stylish (just as are many of the films at Jacob Burns) the fine American fare at Iron Horse changes seasonally, but we suggest the zahtar-dusted swordfish and the frozen white peach souffle;. Just note the restaurant's seating times (6:30 and 8:30) to know what show times you can make.
