The Beagle is a welcoming little place that serves produce-driven creative American cuisine and craft cocktails in Manhattan’s East Village. It is not named after the dog.
Prior to opening the Beagle, owner and general manager Matt Piacentini managed the bar at ‘inoteca liquori, where he took a small but great cocktail program and expanded it with a comprehensive roster of classic and original cocktails. He is also co-owner of Clyde Common, in Portland, OR. A native of Portland, Matt has spent the last many years living and working in San Francisco, London, Los Angeles, and New York.
The Beagle’s cocktail program is best described as academic, historical, and pre-prohibition in style and technique. Dan Greenbaum (the John Dory, Brooklyn Social, ‘inoteca liquori) manages the bar.
Chef Garrett Eagleton prepares produce-driven creative American cooking, and has sharpened his knives at the Tasting Kitchen in Venice, CA, and in the kitchens of Le Pigeon, Lincoln, and Clyde Common, in Portland, OR. Also, he’s from Texas.
Bailly Roesch is the assistant manager and events coordinator.
The Beagle’s décor is inspired by early last-century Vienna, William Morris, the servants’ working quarters of grand country houses, and the not unpleasant restraints of small budgets.
The Beagle opened May 10, 2011.
