It's finally here: Graydon Carter's reboot of the legendary Beatrice Inn has opened, Flo Fab learns. The revamped Bea?Carter's third restaurant, all told?features a "library-style" dining room with fancy upholstery and a back room that Flo Fab describes as "airier" than at the club's previous incarnation. The menu by Brian Nasworthy is straight-up American with steakhouse sensibilities, including items like a wedge salad, roast chicken, shrimp cocktail, and, for just $140, an American wagyu rib-eye for two. The last version of The Beatrice Inn?which began as a speakeasy back when Prohibition made speakeasies exist before eventually getting leased out to downtown nightlife man Paul Sevigny and becoming a true nightlife destination?shuttered in 2009 for a raft of building code violations. Carter picked up the space at the end of last year and now, after a number of fits and starts and preview dinners and tastings, it's fully open. Email for reservations.
