The Beatrice Inn’s Sunday Roast Is an Over-the-Top Meat Feast

Ever since chef Angie Mar purchased the Beatrice Inn from Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, she’s received well-deserved attention and praise for her rich, animal-centric cooking. The West Village restaurant has always only been open for dinner, but Mar’s love of meat — and the fireplace! — make it a perfect fit for a Sunday Roast (the traditional British midday feast). So starting this Sunday, January 29 (and on Sundays only, of course), Mar will serve a special à la carte menu from noon until 8 p.m.

The decidedly anti-brunch offerings include lamb pot roast, halibut and chips, and a full English breakfast with slab bacon, black pudding, roasted tomatoes, mushroom marmalade, and cannellini beans. Mar says she felt inspired by her mother, who grew up “bouncing back and forth between Taipei and Oxford,” and now makes tea that Mar will feature. “Afternoon Roast is how my family spent Sundays,” she says. “There was always a prime rib, scones, and a pot of tea.” Take a look:
