About This Spot
Sinema Restaurant + Bar takes a contemporary approach to classic American cuisine. The historic Melrose Theater opened in 1942, has a storied history of delighting movie-goers and creating long lasting memories. Today, housed in the same space, Sinema aims to keep that tradition alive. The guest experience is inspired by the history of the theater: the architectural design, the patrons, and the stars who graced its big screen.  The culinary team, led by Executive Chef Kyle Patterson, looks to take familiar dishes and make you fall in love with them all over again through his innovative and inspired approach to cooking. Since day one, our entire team has been a family, and we’ve enjoyed sharing countless family meals and ideas together. That is the inspiration behind Sinema’s fresh and innovative food & beverage experience, helping to facilitate memorable moments for our friends and neighbors, near and far. Chef Kyle and the talented team approach the seasonal menus with true vigor, inspired by home cooking and an array of quality ingredients, with a strong emphasis of family and tradition. Sinema's cocktail program celebrates over 150 years of craft libations and includes a rare whiskey program with over 100 selections, thoughtfully selected wines and craft beers. Whether you're looking to have a mid-week dinner, celebrate a special occasion, or host a red-carpet private dining experience, Sinema takes guests back in time with an opulent and nostalgia inducing atmosphere, timeless dishes, and unrivaled service. Each weekend we host Bottomless Brunch. Enjoy an array of gourmet brunch dishes made-to-order and delivered to your table at Sinema’s most popular service. Feast on the entire menu – as much as you’d like – served family-style and brought to you while you relax at the comfort of your table. Our Bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Mary Bar are a wonderful accompaniment to your experience. We’ll bring the bottle service, fresh juices, and tasty garnishes right to you. Our space features two levels of dining space, including a bar and private dining areas. The décor, developed by Anderson Design Studio, is a combination of preserved elements of the original building and modern, custom design. The grand lobby, including the curved staircase, have been restored and complemented by exposed brick walls, cozy velvet tufted booths, and legendary music photography by Robert Knight and Mary Ann Bilham.
