This is the the second location of Beatnik, and as the name suggests, it is indeed on the river. There’s outdoor seating, and like its sister restaurant in West Town it’s decorated with ornate touches and plants that have a tropical feel. It also serves the same style of Mediterranean food and cocktails.
