From the outside, Nitehawk looks like any other independent movie house, but inside are lower- and upper-level bars serving craft beer and cocktails. Once the house opens for seating, it's a movie experience unlike any other in town. In between comfy chairs are small tables ready to hold drinks, hamburgers, and popcorn dressed up with Cotija cheese, lime and cilantro. More ambitious dishes, such as fish tacos and mushroom-sage croquettes with chipotle mayo, are well executed. Servers explain the process before the movie begins and are very discreet during the movie as they continue to complete orders.
