So I work two doors down from this restaurant and I've been eagerly anticipating it's opening ever since they first posted their menu in the window. (By eagerly anticipating, I mean stalking. Seriously, it got pretty bad) They're finally open and I had my first meal there today. I was a little worried that it wouldn't live up to the hype that I was building in my head, but it definitely did. First of all, the menu is quite extensive. They have everything from chicken & waffles to hand-cut fries to baked goods to fresh fruit flavored lemonades to build-your-own-crepes (which is what I chose, along with the sweet potato blood orange souffle). Tons of options for vegetarians as well (something I'm accidentally conscious of because of my pretentious trendy vegetarian brother) The food was great. There are no frilly menu options here, so if you're looking for foods that are impossible to pronounce, this isn't the place. Just simple, but delicious, southern-inspired cuisine.The waitstaff was friendly. So overall, I would say that my first experience at B. Beatty was definitely all I hoped for, and I am so thankful for this place being open 2 doors down from where I work. I anticipate most of my check will be going here. OH. I almost forgot. Speaking of checks, the food was ridiculously underpriced. Yes, UNDERPRICED. My boyfriend and I have no idea how they're pulling off this menu with the prices they're charging but maybe I won't be spending my whole check in here after all. Definitely check it out.
Sprinkle's in my opinion is usually a hit or miss. Maybe it is just my preference, but their are items which I really love and some that I just do not care for. My go to favs are usually the salted corn flake cookie, strawberry ice cream, captain crunch ice cream, and definitely the smore's cupcake! If I were to narrow it down some more I would have to say that the smore's and cookie are my top 2. You MUST try it at least once. They both feature a sweet and salty aspect, which I love because sometimes eating something just sweet can become pretty boring. The service here is usually a hit or miss too. Sometimes you might get exceptional and friendly service, while other times you might receive service from someone who does not want to be there. Nevertheless, I still have a place for Sprinkles and will be going back whenever I get a sweet-salty craving.
If you're all about indie and gourmet foods, here is a place of significance. The fromage and fruit preserves are endless. The best selection I've seen in the metropolitan. My Israeli breakfast included two types of cheese (cheddar and goat cheese), dayum it's the creamiest cheeses I've tasted! The jams were seedless and smooth spread; country French bread was thin and fresh. The groceries are somewhat pricey but if artisanal and organic appeals to you, the price is not questionable because the quality is worth it. The staff is pretty knowledgeable and friendly, and they're happy to give samples and product info. There's no wait to be seated, plus food service is speedy. I love this place for a quick snack or meal. Moreover, the foods are guilt free. You'll be impressed if you're interested in all natural everything.
