What used to be the staid 17th Street Bar and Grill has become the Beacon, an aggressively swank restaurant and lounge in the Beacon Hotel near Dupont Circle. It¬'s an ideal place to take your visiting parents (assuming they are paying). The chef gives his solidly American menu enough twists to impress but he¬'s not so out there, that you stare at the menu with bafflement. They truly want to be a hipster hangout joint, judging by the tiny kissing booth they¬'ve installed and all the sexed-up cocktails they offer. Indulge if you like. They spent $3 mill to impress you. That¬'s got to count for something.

Josh B.10/3/10The brunch was at worst ghetto and at best trailer park. Loud, poor service. Food was okay.
