Menu Preview: Angie Mar's Beatrice Inn Pop-Up in Hong Kong December 10-11
For two nights only this December 10 and 11, Chef Angie Mar will bring her legendary Beatrice Inn—the downtown New York chophouse that's packed to the brim every night with the city's most passionate carnivores; once described by the New York Times' Pete Wells as "a place to go when you want to celebrate your life as an animal"—to Hong Kong, where she'll be staging a pop-up at Black Sheep Restaurants' the Buenos Aires Polo Club (get your reservations here, or call +852 2321 8681). Mar, whose new cookbook Butcher + Beast is an homage to the sins and virtues of red meat—as well as a crash-course in her signature cutting-edge, innovative dry-aging techniques—will be serving up some of her most famous Beatrice Inn dishes, all of which will be making their debuts in Asia.
