Beacon Bar and Grill

Designer Walter Gagliano's second visioning of BBG introduced a fresh, romantic feel to BBG. Vermeer’s portrait of “Girl with a Pearl Earring” was the muse in creating a new look. “Our original goal was to bring the space to a cleaner more contemporary vibe. When we discovered the over scaled Vermeer print, originally created by Philipe Stark, our fondness for bold romanticism found expression and led our fabric and lighting choices in a different direction" stated Gagliano.
Chef Edgar Melendez introduces a menu that balances his own personal flair and beliefs with the wants and needs of our guests. Clean lines, bright flavors, and unique combinations best describe his culinary style. Menu items are influenced by the seasons in conjunction with local farmers and purveyors. Just like our clientele, our cuisine represents a fusion between regional and global influences. Chef Melendez's goal is to give a truly pleasant and graceful dining experience in a casual, elegant setting.

"3 Coarse lubch with complimentary wine for $22. How could you beat that! Upon being seated by the hosted my date and I waited a little longer than an acceptable time to be seen. The restaurant was not busy and there was a male server who walked past us serveral times with out acknowlegement. Finally a female server appeared who also walked past without acknowledgement until finally the host pointed us out despite the fact she was standing right next to us at a stand. After finally being seen everything was smooth from then. Black bean soup and empanadas for starters were great. The entrees were chicken enchiladas and steak and fries, both of which her good. Finished with desert which by then I was more than satisfied"

"We went for brunch and ordered within 5 mins of arrival. Did not receive salads for another 20 mins. Had to ask twice for coffee and it was cold when it arrived. Still had not received meals after being there 1 hr. Manager claimed that a 45-60 min wait for food is normal because it was busy. Having visited many cities and restaurants I have never been anywhere where that was the case. As we were putting on coats & preparing to pay cash for the salads (this is 1 hr 20 mins in), the food was finally rushed to our tables. Manager offered to comp a portion of the meal so we decided to stay and eat. Not likely to recommend to anyone."

"The Saturday brunch here is not very worthwhile. If you can drink 28$ worth of mimosas, then go for it, but the food was mediocre. The first course (caesar salad) was basically just some lettuce with a few croutons thrown in because apparently they had run out of parmesan (although our server was kind enough to bring out mozzarella instead). The steak and eggs were fair, nothing to rave about."

"The dining room was very intimate and we felt like we were the only ones there. Decor and ambiance was excellent. Definitely felt like a celebrity, a little old world Hollywoosldesque. The service was impeccable. Eric, our waitor, was extremely patient, knowledgeable, attentive, and personable. The food was tasty. I mentioned to Eric that my pork chop was a bit hard to cut albeit tasty. He noticed that I didn't eat all of my pork chop and mentioned to the chef who agreed and issued a credit without me even asking. This type of attentiveness was during Restaurant week. So I can't imagine how great the service is normally. Excellent all around experience. And no, the unlimited champagne did not cloud my review!"

"I always love the brunch here and will continue to come back time after time. However, this time the service was lacking. While Richard was a great server, he wasn't around to check on us for the majority of the time we spent there. I believe he was oversat on tables and we were neglected. I don't blame him, I blame the managers. Otherwise great experience with friends though!"

"We have eaten here a few times before and always had a good experience so we returned. The new menu introduced a day or so before this experience was disappointing and the food was overcooked. The waiter was attentive but the kitchen was very slow (surprising since we were the only ones in the dining room). We may try BG again much later - maybe in a year or so."

"I had a party of 11 people and I choose this restaurant (bar) because they had a children's menu. There were two kids (2 and 9 years of age). Apparently the waiter wasn't used to kids being at the restaurant or he forgot how to assist a party with children, but I had to tell him to get crayons and paper for the children and I had to tell him to get a cup with a top for them because he didn't or couldn't understand that children can not drink from the water glass at the table. Of the 11 guest, 2 orders weren't correct. The waiter (aka manager) had good customer service, but wasn't attentive with the large group (maybe more service was needed)."

"for $59 it was a steal with the unlimited champagne. Great for a date night. Servers were attentive and the DJ played all kinds of music right down to some African beats. Will keep them in mind next NYE. It was definitely a lovely way to end the year."

"Was a nice experience. It would have been nice to see more food variety. As someone who does not eat pork, there wasn't much meat to choose from. Waiter was attentive for the most part-we had to refill our own drinks once. He was friendly. I appreciated the large table."

"NYE Prix Fixe dinner was a great bang-for-buck option. 4 courses of accurate/appropriate portions came out quickly including: appetizer with bread, soup/salad, main course (go with the steak), and dessert. The meal included unlimited champagne and I never saw my glass half-full. Waiter was always around with more, so how much champagne you have will sneak up on you! They provided hats, headbands, and other NYE party flare with a DJ and dancing. Late dinner at 8:30pm was perfect to eat and head to a second location for the ball-drop. No one was dancing at 11:30pm when we left. Good food, fun add-ons, and lots of champagne all for $60."
