A throwback to the glamour of mid-century New York and Parisian brasseries, Beckett’s is Glebe’s new neighbourhood local. A place to get a little dressed up for. A place of dining and drinking, where people talk to the sound of a tinkling piano. One restaurant, one menu, two dining rooms.
Chef Jeff Schroeter (Bistro Moncur, Bayswater Brasserie) and playwright-director Wendy Beckett (Claudel), have created Beckett’s restaurant and cocktail lounge in the former Darling Mills site on Glebe Point Road. Breathing life back into the space with a menu of revived classics, diners can expect to see Schroeter’s famous vanilla lobster from Bayswater Brasserie on the menu once again.
On the drinks front, the team have enlisted world-class bartender Charlie Ainsbury (Proof & Company) to create a classics-driven cocktail menu to sit alongside their sommelier’s curated elegant wine list that features a mix of domestic and international wines.
Co-owner Wendy Beckett enlisted her set designer to work with the space. The room, which accommodates around 90 people, is divided in half by the olive velvet-lined colonnade.
