A great new place – Went to Beast in several ocations, great menu selection at affordable prices.
The wait staff is young and cheerfull, specially the beautiful bartenders.
Ah, also great selection of wines and imported spirits.
Nice crowd of young and funky people. Had a great time.
Da Belly of da BEAST – For a neighborhood boasting Cosbyseque brownstones, a coveted proximity to Park Slope and Fort Greene and a citizenry of limousine liberals, Prospect Heights has proven a barren ovum for solid eateries. For restaurants, the neighborhood's twin fallopian tubes, Washington and Vanderbilt, are speckled with the overpriced, the nondescript and the mediocre.
So it was with trembling anticipation that we headed to BEAST. To put it bluntly, they failed in all regards. Despite a promising menu, our appetites were shriveled when told the chorizo and cod were unavailable. The fried manchego cheese was miniscule and no better than mozzarella sticks. The burgers were bland meatballs; no onions, no spices, nada. The accompanying baked potato was a tablespoon of tater salad and the "salad" was leaves of limp arugula. Although friendly, the wait staff was VERY reluctant to give us more bread, but she did recommend a pizzeria up the block.
fun and quirky with good food – Terrific, top notch tapas. In two visits, I've had the red peppers stuffed with salt cod, which were delicious, and the lime-marinated shrimp which were a standout. Portions are generous, especially for tapas. Solicitous service and a staff that is knowledgeable about food make for a pleasant dining experience all around. The sort of goth decor is quirky but fun, and tall pours on all drinks complete the package. Great new place.
