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.

OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)
2.0  Dined 7 days ago

Went for birthday brunch w/family & 2young children. Requested a high chair for a 1year old& were.told they didn’t have high chair available for use, they were in ballroom. Called manager over who said they would look for one. She returned w/no high chair stating none were available in entire restaurant. My family has been here numerous times& have always had access to a high chair or booster seat. Found this odd that none available in entire restaurant! It was not an enjoyable experience w/having a 1yr old jumping around making it difficult for us to enjoy our meal.

This was my first visit, so I do not have any experience to compare to. But, if you accept reservations for 930pm dinner then you should be prepared to serve, not rush from course to course and bring the check without asking, and clearly before we were done.

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.
