Beekman & Augustine

I had the chance to check out Augustine—a new-ish brasserie in the Financial District—with some company peeps today for a rare non-sad-desk-lunch. Augustine may be No.1 on Eater’s heatmap of hot NYC restaurants right now, but I definitely went in with more interest in sneaking a peek at the newly opened Beekman Hotel, which takes over a landmarked 1890s building with an incredible nine-story atrium.

And wow oh wow oh wow! It was jaw-dropping (defined here as: I couldn’t stop taking photos—which can be considered sad, but, alas, #realtalk). It was ornate, atmospheric—kind of like the Bradbury Building in L.A.—but surprisingly more intimate…which made the depth and light of the space even more stunning.

Augustine was not too shabby either 😉 I loved the discreet entrance from Fowler & Wells, another new restaurant actually housed by the atrium. And all of the lights! (The food, Atlantic Cod, was good, but I’m not exactly the most discerning eater.)
