Bar Beau

OPENED139 DAYS AGO

Williamsburg welcomes a new all-day café and cocktail bar, Bar Beau.

This isn’t just another café to add to the list of places you may or may not visit someday – Bar Beau is the latest project by Claire Chan (of West Village café The Elk), where cozy coffee shop vibe meets trendy bistro-style bar. Bar Beau feels like The Elk’s fun twin sister who stays up later and loves a party with food. In other words, this one is a must-visit.

Bar Beau - dish

The Spot:

Chan’s fortay is creating calming spaces with an effortlessly pleasing aesthetic – that’s why an all-day destination is a great move. Bar Beau channels a natural palate of the Pacific Northwest, featuring exposed white brick, a sleek marble and concrete bar, alongside wooden elements for a warm finish.

The Food:

Moving away from a menu with small, medium and large plates, Bar Beau encourages bistro-style dining with a variety of shareable dishes. Helmed by chef Gemma Kamin-Korn (previously of Lalito), options include shishitos with Kewpie, Thai basil and romesco; udon served in shisho pesto and lemon; and asparagus with toasted bonito flakes and tonnato. Daytime fare is all about Brooklyn, offering fresh pastries from local vendors Bien Cuit, Sans Bakery, Ovenly and Ra Bliss Balls.

Bar Beau - Cocktail

The Drinks:

When it’s time to swap Parlor Coffee for something a little stronger, beverage director Grant Wheeler (of The Garrett, The Lately and Borrachito) offers culinary cocktails and twists on the classics. Try the Cassandra, a mix of Japanese plum whiskey, bonded whiskies, fermented pineapple, honey, lemon, hyssop, and habanero.

Bar Beau - Udon

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $6 and $16; cocktails are around $14-$16.

In a Nutshell:

Bar Beau serves local coffee with baked goods by day, and elegant cocktails with creative small plates by night.
