On DVD/VOD: THE MISSING INGREDIENT

THEMISSINGINGREDIENT-KEYComing to DVD and VOD tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11: THE MISSING INGREDIENT

Michael Sparaga’s look at a restaurant’s attempts to find success had its world premiere at DOC NYC last year. Its festival circuit has included Santa Barbara, RiverRun, Newport, and Feast, among others. In addition to its DVD release, it now comes to VOD platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Vimeo on Demand, and Google Play.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
A story of two Manhattan restaurants: Gino’s, an Upper East Side fixture for more than six decades, and Pescatore, a Midtown staple on Second Ave since 1993 now facing stiff competition as the neighborhood changes. After taking over Pescatore, new restaurateur Charles Devigne seeks to shake up things in a bid for new business. His controversial decision to borrow one of Gino’s iconic features inspires Michael Sparaga’s exploration of that undefinable quality which transforms a simple eatery into an institution.
