Beat Brasserie Restaurant Review

: This hippie American brasserie in Harvard Square is a sibling of the South End’s Beehive and shows many similarities to its family lineage. Both feature live music nightly, an artisanal wine selection and hearty fare. Starters include pulled lamb nachos with apple salsa; the Bohemian platter loaded with hummus, salads, pickles and cheese; and a vegetarian borscht. Heartier dishes include tomato lasagna made with short ribs and the roast pork French dip. Vegans go for the Inca bowl, with heart-healthy vegetables such as soybeans, kale, carrots and quinoa. We suggest the swordfish tacos filled with black beans and rice, topped with shredded cheddar and fiery salsa. Pair your meal with a glass of wine (available on tap) or a cocktail with a funny name like Granny Takes a Trip (ingredients include rye whiskey and sweet vermouth). Beat Brasserie hosts brunch every Saturday and Sunday with live jazz.
