Creative East Village cocktail bar the Beagle — of the quirky brunch — is dispensing with its menu of small and large dishes in favor of a less fussy small-plates-only lineup. Favorites like Frito pie and the cocktail-food pairing boards, including burrata-gin martini and the pork-belly-Manhattan are sticking around. New to the lineup: "cold pizza" (seafood-and-greens-topped flatbread) and a sherry pairing with braised oxtail and veggies. The new menu launches today. [Related]
