Little Beet Table (LBT), a 100 percent gluten-free restaurant that serves healthful dishes and vegetable-forward cocktails, announced the opening of a new location in Greenwich, Connecticut (376 Greenwich Avenue). The vibrant and health-conscious eatery will act as a stylish gathering place for local families and friends.
Owned and operated by Aurify Brands, Little Beet Table serves lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch in New York City, Chicago, and now, Greenwich, CT. The development of the Greenwich menus was a collaboration between the group’s culinary director Chef Matt Aita (previously of NYC’s acclaimed Rouge Tomate and Jean-Georges) and Chef Rich Perez (who is at the helm of the Greenwich location; previously of Picholine and Roy Choi’s restaurant group). Prioritizing the use of responsibly sourced local ingredients whenever possible, and employing a cooking philosophy meant to inspire energy and joy in guests, LBT’s menu features signature and seasonal bites like Sheep Milk Ricotta (strawberry-fennel jam, mustard greens, grilled bread), Roasted Shrimp Salad (market greens, quinoa, avocado, spiced almonds, golden raisins, in a white balsamic vinaigrette), and Crispy Salmon (provencal vegetables, saffron, basil), along with new dishes exclusive to the Greenwich location like Cavatelli with Roasted Corn (roasted corn, cherry tomato, basil pistou, parmesan). Rather than offer a small number of dishes for individuals with special diets, LBT puts guests’ needs at the forefront, thus setting a new standard for accommodating service. General manager, Paul Mellon (previously of Bartaco and Barcelona), will run point on execution and service for the new location.
Beverage director Cristian Mollina is responsible for the vegetable-forward cocktail program, with superfood-rich drinks including Clementine & Turmeric (mezcal, clementine and turmeric syrup, lemon, chia seeds) and Apple & Celery (vodka, sherry, green apple, celery, lemon, club soda). Exclusive to the Greenwich location is seasonal Sangria on Tap and a digestif cocktail, Coffee & Whiskey (corn whiskey, amaro, cherry demerara cordial, coffee bitters, black salt). A curated selection of domestic and international wines, gluten-free beers and ciders, non-alcoholic drinks and cold-pressed juices are also available.
“We’re so thrilled to be joining the lively Greenwich community,” says culinary director Matt Aita. “Our menu is designed to be concurrently delicious and nourishing, and we look forward to establishing ourselves as a go-to neighborhood destination for date nights, family dinners, and celebratory brunches.”
LBT Greenwich is located steps from the Greenwich Metro North station, and the property was designed by Joe Calabrese of Calabrese Design (previously of AvroKO). With 115 seats and a variety of elegant yet comfortable seating options, from large banquettes to bistro-style sidewalk seating, LBT cultivates an inviting atmosphere for guests to gather and connect over wholesome food and drinks.
Little Beet Table has existing locations in New York City and Chicago with plans to open its fourth location in Chevy Chase, Maryland during the latter half of 2019. Fast-casual, sister concept, The Little Beet, has 10 locations around the country, including one in the Westchester Mall, just 15 minutes from Greenwich.
