Village Voice's Description
At the Beagle, it's easy to order multiple rounds of expertly made cocktails, such as the citrusy Airmail or the sherry-based Adonis, only to realize that you haven't even perused the bill of fare yet. But you can have a proper meal here, too. Chef Garrett Eagleton dabbles with international influences and plenty of Green-market hauls, to mostly impressive results. Highlights include grilled quail stretched over a bed of gooey grits, mussels and clams, and a half chicken, perfectly browned and crisp, flesh oozing with juice. However, service could be friendlier. Then again, this is the type of spot that caters to well-coiffed, slickly dressed kids who don't mind shouting to converse or making dinner reservations by e-mail-or, alternatively, waiting two hours for a table during prime hours.
Tips from foursquare
Try the sherry cobbler. Bar mgr Dan Greenbaum adds raspberries muddled w/ a wedge of lemon & a splash of simple syrup to Lustau Dry Amontillado sherry. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011
This East Village restaurant is outfitted with vintage wallpaper and pages from a 1915 etiquette text. Sample one of the pre-Prohibition quaffs, like the Sherry Cobbler (sherry and lemon juice).
The Golden Dog has a lovely smoky flavor. It features a peaty Scotch mixed with apricot liquor, Bénédictine, Lillet and bitters.
New spot! The bartenders here take their craft very seriously so order away. PS: it's not open on Mondays.
The Beagle does this latest trend justice with their Barrel-Aged Manhattan -- full of hints of yummy caramel & spice.
