Beauty & the Butcher boasts a sprawling, modern dining area designed to accommodate 160 guests, including a 30-seat bar, merging contemporary aesthetics with homely warmth. At its heart, a sleek, gray-veined quartz bar encircles a showcase of dry-aging meats, standing as a central feature. The interior is adorned with warm, earth-toned woods and shimmering bronze touches, with tabletops and chairs in a palette of white quartz, honey, and caramel, creating a rich visual tapestry. Forest green leather booths offer a cozy dining experience, set against the backdrop of elegantly adorned bookshelves. The ambiance is further enhanced by the soft glow of brass-toned chandeliers, casting a welcoming light that spills from the room’s floor-to-ceiling windows to the street beyond. A secluded private dining area at the restaurant's rear offers a more intimate setting for up to 30 seated guests or 60 in a cocktail-style arrangement, perfect for private gatherings. The restaurant's exterior is thoughtfully composed of natural elements like red oak wood and limestone, with bronze metal framing that gracefully outlines the corner entrance, inviting diners into a world where culinary excellence meets elegant design.
