The food industry is absolutely skewered in The Menu, the new thriller from Succession director Mark Mylod. The film sets its sights on the world of fine dining by focusing on a destination restaurant somewhere in the Pacific Northwest that becomes the site of satirical horrors. The island-bound establishment called Hawthorn is so integral to the story that production designer Ethan Tobman designed and built it almost in its entirety in Savannah, Georgia. The majority of the film's action, which follows a group of diners as they indulge in an increasingly chaotic tasting menu from Chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes), takes place within the walls of the dining room and kitchen.
