Beat Hôtel is an American brasserie and bar located in the heart of Harvard Square. Inspired by the hippie and beat movements of the mid-twentieth century, we cater to all walks of life. Our mission is to satisfy the local community as well as vagabonds passing through.<br /><br />With an always fresh, seasonal, and wholesome menu, enjoyable for carnivores and vegetarians alike, our dishes draw influence and flavors from around the world. Our bar celebrates American spirits and American artisanal wines crafted by small batch winemakers with heart and soul.<br /><br />To heighten the senses further, we feature daily live music by cutting edge musicians in jazz, blues and world music, bringing eclectic artistry to our stage in Cambridge.

"Three adults and a 9 year old went here for Easter Brunch. The food was very good as was the service. We would like to try this place again during normal dining hours."

Located in Boston's historic North End, Aria Trattoria features a mix of modern and old world Italian cuisine while paying homage to Massimo family roots from abruzzi influences. The menu is built on a foundation of simple, fresh pastas and antipasti, as well as a healthy dose of grilled meats, fish, and poultry dishes. Well-loved favorites like limoncello marinated shrimp, Cavetelli con Agnello, and massimo's grandmother's Porchetta <br /><br />

"When we arrived we thought what a nice cozy little space. In minutes the place filled up and it was like dining at a Who concert. It was so loud we took our deserts home. Normal conversation is impossible. LOUD isn't a strong enough word. Here it is the next day and I still have a headache. The breakdown: Nonna Rosalie’s meatballs were very good. The Insalata Caprese with local "hairloom tomaotes" (that's how it appeared on the menu) was also very good. The swordfish was terrific. The Rigatoni Bolognese was undercooked and uninspiring. The Torta al Cioccolato and Tiramisu were very good. I wish I had read the reviews before making this reservation. We will not be going back to Aria."
