After reading a couple of reviews on a Friday night, we decided to try Beast and Bottle. We were amazed to find parking, and also, we were seated right away. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere/decor very pleasant and relaxing. We were looking forward to an exciting palate of flavors the menu was boasting about. We order a couple of appetizers (small plates) and were blown away - combination of flavors was amazing. Unfortunately, we did not suspect that it would be the best part of our meal. Braised lamb with potatoes - was OK. The meat wasn't quite falling of the bones, and there was this sauce with smoked flavor. It killed all of the other flavors on the plate. Potatoes were also smoked, but the flavor was almost as if someone poured liquid smoke on them and then baked them. I know that wasn't the case, but that was the flavor. Pork chop - OK, nothing too spectacular. Dessert - tart crust was too thick and was barely breakable with a knife. The dessert had several interesting components, including avocado sauce, however, none of them went together. Would I recommend it? Yes, of course, perhaps you will have better luck and different menu, but be prepared that some flavors this restaurant experiments with are not always well matched. Would I return? I don't know. For $170 dinner for two, w/ one cocktail and glass of champagne, I might take my money somewhere else.
