There's something that feels foreign about the lobby/restaurant at the Living Room Theaters. The sparse tables and chairs look straight from Ikea, and the minimalist touches feel like the designer used to work at Volvo. And it all works -- this is South Florida's home for indie and foreign flicks after all. The system for ordering at Florida Atlantic University's theater is also completely foreign, and here, unfortunately, it possesses no Swedish ingenuity. Next to the one-man box office window is a restaurant cash register, where you may wait in line to learn that it's just for ordering food in the theater. If you decide instead to sit in the restaurant, you'll be at the mercy of a couple servers rarely patrolling the place. But if you go for eating in the theaters instead -- and why wouldn't you? -- you'll be given a number on a stick that you bring with you to your seat. The menu largely consists of tapas, and if you've ordered a few items, you'll be juggling Leggo-like boxes. The wine and beer menu includes a fine selection of the cheap and the moderately priced. The mezza plate includes a well-spiced hummus, a too-salty baba ganouch, and a fresh tabouli. Eat the pita bread quick before it hardens. The Spanish tortilla comes sliced tartine-style, with exposed layers of egg, potato, and ham. If the caprese is an indication, the paninis may be the best bet here. The ciabatta comes well toasted, the mozarella melting into the red peppers and basil.
