  • Mmm, boeuf-y.
Ignore all those pundits who tell you not to go see Julie & Julia when you're hungry. You can indulge both your movie-going appetite and the one the film will stir up for Julia Child's famous boeuf bourguignon at the same time. And you won't even have to rush home and carefully dry off the meat to ensure its proper browning, as demonstrated in the movie at least three times.

Through the end of August, the Grand Café (501 Geary at Taylor) will treat you to a boeuf bourguignon (with pearl onions, mushrooms, and carrots) for $13.50, half the regular price, when you show them your Julie & Julia ticket stub. (Escargots, huitres, and tarte tatin, also glimpsed in the film, available at regular prices.) And if the scenes of Julia's love-in-the-afternoon lunchtime frolics with husband Paul arouse appetites in you that are even more carnal, allow us to remind you that the adjacent Hotel Monaco has rooms for rent.
