Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter has announced the appointment of Angie Mar as the new executive chef for The Beatrice Inn, the glamorous West Village restaurant that Carter owns along with Emil Varda and Brett Rasinski. Chef Mar is a graduate of the French Culinary School and has worked with Andrew Tarlow of Reynard and Marlow & Sons. More recently Mar worked under April Bloomfield at The Spotted Pig.
Chef Mar’s classic American menu will be created from handpicked vegetables and fruits, free-range chicken and grass-fed meat from upstate New York. In addition to her locavore-centric menu, chef Mar will be bringing a signature 45-day dry aged burger to The Beatrice Inn that “will soon become known as one of the best in the city.”
“We all have that one dish from our childhood that stays with us,” said chef Mar. “When people eat our food, I hope that it takes them to place of comfort, but also somewhere elevated and unexpected.”
