New Neighbor: The Little Beet Table

Earlier this month, Chef Franklin Becker’s popular midtown lunch spot The Little Beet branched out in the Flatiron District with a full-service sit-down restaurant aptly named The Little Beet Table. The restaurant expands upon the mission of its fast casual sibling, serving local, seasonal and natural ingredients and also happens to be 100% gluten-free.

The concept blossomed when Chef Becker, at the age of 27, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. He learned to use simple ingredients to create dishes that were healthy and flavorful. He is the author of three cookbooks, Eat & Beat Diabetes, The Diabetic Chef, and Good Fat Cooking.  At The Little Beet Table, Chef Becker employs a wholesome cooking style in the hopes of turning healthy eating into a way of life for everyone.

Appetizers include Tuna Tataki with millet, avocado and tomato, charred jalapeño vinaigrette; and White Bean and Kale Soup with parmesan. Entrées include “Arroz Con Pollo,” chicken with three kinds of rice cooked in Moorish spices and topped with date chutney and Chilean-style pebre; and a Quinoa “Risotto” with seasonal vegetables. The restaurant also features a Bar Bites menu, which includes Vegetable Crudite with mint raita and roasted red pepper hummus; Flatbread Pizza with mushrooms, ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan and herbs; and The Burger topped with roasted tomato, potato crunch, special sauce, bacon & NY state cheddar on Free Bread.

The space, designed by eimer design, features a 72-seat dining room and a 12-seat bar. The dining room incorporates elements that reinforce the local nature of Chef Becker’s menu offerings. Uniquely rustic furnishings with simple features allow guests to feel as if they’re sitting at a familiar table setting. Repurposed accent lighting is used above two communal tables. Table settings are created with farmhouse style glassware, flatware, plating and napkins. The bar also features similar elements—bead board, unfinished white oak, antiqued mirror glass and black metal accents—and a custom zinc bar top. A living wall element fixed to a bold beet-colored wall harnesses the rear of the space.

 

Hours are Monday through Saturday 5:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Lunch hours will follow in the coming weeks. 

The Little Beet Table, 333 Park Avenue South, between East 24th Street and East 25th Street, (212) 466-3330.
