Cambridge to be home for Beat Hotel restaurant
September 26, 2013 by Mark
The restaurateurs of the Beehive in the South End of Boston have announced that they will be opening shortly at the Beat Hotel restaurant in Cambridge. No doubt they are using business card printing for the restaurant in Boston so that people dining there will be aware of the new restaurant, and will be tempted to cross the Charles River to Cambridge to sample its fare.
The restaurant is located in Harvard Square and will have a capacity of 360 people. It will be a bohemian American brasserie with two bars and a performance stage for live music every night, featuring jazz, blues, and world music, and the works of local artists. The fare will be eclectic yet casual in nature and will have both meat and vegetarian dishes and a wide selection of seafood entrees prepared by Executive Chef, Rebecca Newell, who is moving from the Beehive to the Cambridge restaurant.
The beverage menu will feature spirits and wines from American artisans and made from small batch winemakers. There will be a state-of-the art wine system with 24 true wines by the glass available in several sizes and a wine list of bottled wines. Six beers will be available on tap as well as craft cocktails.
The interior design of the restaurant focuses on work done by local craftsmen, including the hand-crafted woodwork of the tables, service stations, and bar, in addition to the drapery of the stage and the art on the walls.
When it opens, the restaurant will be available for dinner only seven a days a week, but plans to expand to include breakfast, lunch, and brunch hours.
