THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Beaker & Flask Restaurant Review

: Over-size booths line Beaker & Flaskā€™s interior, which is shaped like a silo lying on its side with a lofty bank of windows on the rounded edge. A long, curving bar dominates the space and many patrons come in just for a cocktail or two from the frequently changing and always clever list. Careful attention is paid to details, from vintage glassware to the frozen coconut water used as ice in a rum drink. An interesting beer and wine list is available too, with many options available by the glass. The food deserves equal attention, with a range of small and large plates that work as either snacks or full meals. The menu is rarely the same from visit to visit, but it tends to be meat-intensive, with trendy offerings from all parts of the animal, such as pig ears and pork belly. One may also encounter a green lettuce salad with buttermilk tarragon vinaigrette, black tea chicken, and an over-the-top-rich chocolate cheese brioche.
