Profile

Nestled in the midst of colossal midtown-west skyscrapers, this cheerful two-story restaurant does elegant simple food in an easy, fast-casual atmosphere. Sleek, low-hanging lamps are just dim enough, while the wood-tiled walls are made modern with metallic accents and plant boxes sprawling with leafy greens. Staples from kale to quinoa are charred or roasted and seasoned—simple, but good and fresh. Case in point: The charred broccoli is simply garnished with garlic, chili pepper, lemon, and olive oil, but packed with vibrant umami flavors. It would be easy to mistake the Little Beet for a vegan restaurant, but three out of four proteins offered are meat options and fish (the other’s tofu), and the roasted sweet potatoes with smoked sea salt would suffer from a lack of Pecorino. There’s a purity in this take on American food, which gravitates toward natural flavors and wholesome dishes that taste all the better for being guilt-free. There’s a good chance that the speakers will pipe in Arcade Fire songs any time of day, and the bustling crowd at lunchtime is when Little Beet feel coziest.
