Florent: Queen Of The Meat Market
Let Julianne Moore, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Musto and other famous (and infamous) faces take you on a fantastic voyage to New York City's legendary Florent diner. For 23 years, the all-night eatery in the city's Meat Packing District was prime stomping ground for a surprising mix of A-list celebrities, tourists, families and club kids. This wildly entertaining documentary chronicles the history and final days of this outrageous icon!--(C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The interviews and vintage clips are a vivid record of an extraordinary era in the city's history."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"A briskly paced, unself-consciously edited celebration that matches the giddy vibe of its namesake."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"When Julianne Moore enthuses about the fact that kids got crayons with their meals, you have to wonder if a short film might have suited this story better."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A unique, cherished New York restaurant and its equally singular owner are celebrated in this affectionate documentary."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"It is a touching, elegiac tale of the rise (and some would say fall) of a colorful New York neighborhood under the relentless march of gentrification."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"David Sigal's documentary may not quite manage to canonize the diner, at least not to flyover country, but it sure makes it sound like a good meal and a great time."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
