Tasting Menu (2013)
This movie does not focus quite enough on the cuisine to be a truly food oriented movie, but that backdrop does make it fun. Mar is closing her restaurant in the Girona area and she is not sure what she is going to do next. Her lover and co-partner is clearly angling for a deal with two competing Japanese businessmen, but Mar is not enthusiastic. There is restlessness afoot with her. The various restaurant guests have various dramas going on, but all in all the focus of the movie is a superficial one, being happy with light entertainment and the occasional thing to think about. Very entertaining, with enough restaurant based action for a foodie, and streaming on Netflix.
