Heard Around the Block

“Beat Brasserie, Harvard Square’s soon-to-be hotspot from the team behind South End’s Beehive, has been open for less than two weeks. But chef Rebecca Newell is already in the swing of things, it seems. The Chopped winner, who moved over from The Beehive…”

“You know and love the South End’s Beehive, now meet the hippie-inspired Beat Hôtel, its sister restaurant in Harvard Square that recalls the neighborhood of yore, a hangout for restless spirits like Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Edie Sedgwick.”

– The Boston Globe, 10/21/13

“Inspired by the “hippie and beat movements” of the ‘60s (and named for a run-down hotel in Paris’ Latin Quarter), Beat Hôtel’s a funky, throwback sister spot to the South End’s popular that’s tucked under the Gap in the former Tannery and boasts eclectic vittles, wine on tap, and live jazz nightly.”
