He returned to the District to open Restaurant Eve as chef de cuisine and later worked as the executive chef at 1789 restaurant. After a brief stint in Minneapolis working at an organic farm and earning his B.A. in culinary management, Nathan returned to D.C. to join the team at The Fainting Goat. He currently oversees culinary programs there as well as at Tiger Fork, Calico Blagden Alley, and now at Primrose as well.

Primrose is a French-inspired wine bar from husband-wife team Sebastian Zutant and Lauren Winter, in partnership with Greg Algie and Nate Beauchamp. Located in Washington, D.C.’s popular Brookland neighborhood, Primrose focuses on small and natural wine producers from France and the United States, with 75 offerings by the bottle and 15 by the glass. Four drafts are available in addition to a selection of specialty cocktails. Food at Primrose will focus on French bistro classics such as coq au vin, steak frites, beef bourguignon, and French onion soup as well as charcuterie and cheese plates. Many dishes will be served family-style with freshly baked baguette.
