So you might be wondering at this point what a beefcake is or if there is even such a thing. Well there is. Beefcakes is a small yet vibrant restaurant and bar in the heart of Greenpoint on Somerset Road. I before the 22 April 2011 had never heard of such a place but that all changed when my friend decided to go there for her, well this is ironic, twenty second birthday.
When she first mentioned the restaurant I was so intrigued that I looked to Google to help me find out more. Well as the name might suggest they specialise in mainly burgers and have any type flavour or topping you could ever want on a burger...and I mean anything. Also, the name might give this away as well, it’s mainly a gay hangout with hot waiters serving the food wearing tight tank tops, some even wearing no tops at all! The decor and mood of Beefcakes is pink, fluffy and full of activity. It is the perfect place to go for a bachelorette, in fact the table next to us had a future bride celebrating her last night of freedom...she even took a body shot off one of the hot waiters (for those that don’t know a body shot entails one sipping a shot of some sort of alcohol out of someone’s bellybutton), I don’t think it’s my kind of thing but it was fun to watch.
So for those of you who want to try something a little different I suggest Beefcakes for a fun night out that won’t disappoint...and the food and cocktails are pretty great too.
