A friend of mine recently tried the Beatrice for dinner after hearing that they appointed a Spotted Pig alum to oversee the kitchen. She raved about the food, and suggested I check it out. I was very impressed. The skirt steak was sensational, and the dry-aged burger rivals Spotted Pig. We had the roasted carrots and truffle fries on the side, and both were amazing. For dessert, we had an incredible lemon tart and a tasty chocolate cake topped with chili flakes and sea salt. The restaurant was very crowded, but we had a nice table near the fireplace in the back room, which is impressively designed. Service was friendly, a little slow, but it was the weekend, and their kindness made up for the wait time between courses. The Beatrice is a strikingly beautiful restaurant, and we had an enjoyable evening all around.

I went to Beatrice Inn when it first reopened and had a perfectly awful piece of chicken. I decided to give it another chance on the hopes that it improved since. Incredibly, it was worse. I had steak tartare which, for reasons that defy logic, contains a dollop of sea urchin giving it an awful fishy flavor--and that was its only flavor as it hadn't been seasoned in the least. My wife and our guest ordered scallops, a dish containing three scallops and a huge heap of oily bacon and soggy croutons and a bunch of unidentifiable things. And it was bloody expensive! Still, the place was packed to the rafters because it has exclusivity appeal, but if you care about food, I'd recommend staying away.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
