When Gary Winick took Sigourney Weaver to lunch at the Payard Bistro here, he simply wanted her to star in his new film, "Tadpole." But he did even better. The actress not only agreed to take the part, but snagged the restaurant as a location for a key scene in the film. "We wanted to shoot a scene where the women in the film have tea at the Plaza Hotel," Winick recalled over lunch at a considerably more downscale eatery around the corner from his mixing studio.

It's a microscopic freak show inside an Army laboratory that is studying how chemicals and other pollutants affect the development of aquatic life.
