I have witnessed it over the years, when a movie crew takes over a restaurant to shoot a scene they go full throttle. Artie's Steak & Seafood Restaurant on City Island in the Bronx hosted a shoot for "Billions", a new drama series that will premier on Showtime in early in 2016, starring Damian Lewis of 'Homeland' fame and Paul Giamatti. According to proprietor Spiro Chagares, they kept cast and crew happy by cooking for them throughout the day. I could imagine. They have a wonderful kitchen.
Artie's has done this before during the filming for 'City Island', the movie, back in 2010, and most recently for two episodes of 'Basketball Housewives'.
