Sunset Grill is a 1993 American neo-noir mystery film starring Peter Weller as a private detective in Los Angeles. The movie co-stars Lori Singer and Stacy Keach, and was directed by Kevin Connor.
Ryder Hart is a private investigator and former police officer who is down on his luck and drinks too much. His estranged wife Anita runs a bar and restaurant called the Sunset Grill. Anita is romantically involved with Jeff Carruthers, a Los Angeles police detective who formerly worked with Hart.
Carruthers introduces Hart to a wealthy businessman, Harrison Shelgrove, and his alluring assistant Loren. When someone close to them is murdered, Hart and Carruthers team up to try to solve the crime.
In the course of their investigation they uncover another mystery involving illegal immigrants from Mexico, including two who worked at the Sunset Grill.
