The new spot will be more “jackets off, come-as-you-are.’ The name Le B. is a nod to The Beatrice Inn, which would be 100 years old this year. “Le B. is a restaurant for the fans and friends of The Beatrice Inn, my friends and neighbors” Mar says. “Le B. is fun, witty and a little more grown up, like them.”

The menu features a Continental menu, riffing on a period of American cuisine that borrowed technique from France with decadent American interpretations. Le B. inspired by quintessential New York restaurants like David Waltuck’s Chanterelle, Barry Wine’s The Quilted Giraffe, and Jimmy Bradley’s The Harrison.
