Well, the new Spanish flick Tasting Menu has come up with a brilliant plot for a food-themed rom-com. It's the last night at El Bulli-like restaurant Chakula, the "best restaurant in the world," and an attractive couple have a table booked at the memorable meal. The only problem? They made their reservation a year before, and have since broken up. Sounds like a delicious premise to us.

We're assuming that the two will find that the path to true love is indeed through the stomach, but looking forward to watching what sounds like a really awkward situation -- not to mention drooling over all the food in the film.

Check out the trailer here:

It's unclear when the film will be released in the U.S. -- it's coming out in Spain June 14, and Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. rights, according to Deadline. Here's hoping it comes to Netflix in a timely fashion.
