Justinn DeBeer has been involved in Bar Alto, Laruche and Brooklyn Standard. For this venue he’s transformed the old Chester Street Bakery into an ebullient bar.

Hello Gorgeous is simple, fun, colourful and down-to-earth. The palette is dominated by pinks, teals and rich blues, with brass detailing adorning the archways that help open up the space. There are also chandeliers and Spanish-style rose mallow tiles. 

Outside, a deck seats 60 people in the shade, while an upstairs area is set aside for functions and private dining (and as a back-up space should the summer storms encroach).

The food is share plates with a strong focus on seafood: coconut-crusted rum-drunken prawns, sesame-crusted tuna-loin sliders, and roasted bone marrow with sourdough crisps.

The drinks list involves 40 red and white wines and 10 sparklings and champagnes by the bottle. Cocktails include a grapefruit spritzer and more exotic creations such as the Miss G (Belvedere vodka, blue cacao and blueberry shrub) and the Quiet Sunday (Cointreau, honey puree, lemon).
