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.

Dinner with colleagues. Our server was excellent. I wish I recalled his name. We were 6 on a business dinner. The food was mediocre across all of us. Bland pasta dish for half of us. The rest enjoyed our meal better. But still not extraordinary. The ambience is something out of a70s film set. Some of us loved it, others not so much.

We went on a cold Sunday evening and while the place was not very crowded, the food was excellent. After a while the crowd picked up and we enjoyed the selection of specialty drinks and appetizers along with the ambience. The wings, salmon and steak were outstanding and even though the servers were busy, they constantly checked to be sure our group was doing well. It is located in a residential neighborhood but not that far from the downtown DC area and I will definitely make another trip there on my next business trip to DC.

Dining at the Beacon is always a good experience. Our usual server was not working New Year's Eve but the server we had - Tom - was excellent and certainly one we would ask for in the future.

Used to be my favorite. I can’t say that anymore. Food was definitely no longer worth $39. Things were cold, lumpy, etc. For example the “creamy grits” could be cut with a knife. Environment was louder than I ever remember.
