West Town has a new restaurant and cocktail spot called Beatnik, and they’re doing small plates with a Spanish and Mediterranean influence. The restaurant is big on atmosphere, with areas that will make you feel like you’re in Pan’s Labyrinthor The Darjeeling Limited. You may find yourself having dinner on an ornate daybed from a temple in Bali, which would seem ridiculous if the food wasn’t so good. Somehow, eating rabbit arepa, fried quail, and dumplings manages to make sense in the fun and kind of bizarre space. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re with people who appreciate some strange.
