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.

Very pleasant for Valentine's Day. Quiet venue; the steak was great and the champagne flowed throughout dinner. The price was very reasonable considering what other restaurants were charging. We haven't been to brunch in many years, but we will go back again based on our
Valentine's Day experience.

Went for Valentine's day with my wife and we had a great time. Our service was stellar, the food was delicious, and it was a nice low-key vibe. Will go again.

We were a group of friends that normally get together for brunch on Sundays. Due to the rain and changing schedules our number of guest decreased, however I updated the restaurant as soon as I knew the confirmed number of guest. When I was greeted by the manager/host and gave him my name, he very rudely said "oh the party the went from 10 to 6?" I found that very unnecessary and unprofessional. He told me to wait in the back until my entire party arrived. He was very rude and nasty to the servers that would come up to ask a question and his attitude also was not appreciated by a couple of other guest. Once we made it past the "guard dog" we were seated and immediatly greeted. From this point on our experience picked up and i would recommend this restaurant for the food and price only. Host are the first impression of the restaurant and having someone so negative and rude is NOT a good look.

Upon arrival, it was chaotic with the lobby jammed with people. The options were limited for a vegetarian. The kale salad had strawberries. For vegans, the options are mostly limited to fresh fruit and hard over cooked potatoes. Our waiter was outstanding and attentive. Valet parking of $15 is quite pricey.

I love coming to the Beacon for brunch. I love the omelets and waffles. I feel like they have a good selection of food for the price with unlimited mimosas included.

This was the second time we have celebrated my father's birthday at this restaurant. The experience was great and the birthday dessert was beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant.
