From the team behind The Stanton Social comes Beauty & Essex, a grand 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge in the heart of the lower east side.
A Victoria's Secret Angel-approved hot spot for New Year's Eve 2012!
A must-dine in the LES. Get the lobster tacos, but you might need two orders. They're scrumptious.
Free champaign in the bathroom. Okay
We've been told to try the Lobster Tacos! Delishhh!
Enter through the rustic pawn shop and suddenly reveal a whole secret lounge. Tapas dishes and exquisite cocktails, this is a great place to start the night. Free champagne in the bathroom? Yes!
If you don't mind the loud 'scenester' atmosphere this place actually has good food. I like the lobster tacos, filet and burger. PS the free champagne in the bathroom weirds me out.
FUN FACT: They serve pink champagne in the ladies restroom, which definitely makes the wait more bearable.
Complimentary champagne in the ladies' - amazing!!
Cocktails all great. Must get salt & vinegar fries, lobster tacos, butterscotch pot de creme.
You definitely CAN make a reservation but they definitely WON'T seat you anywhere near on time. Go to the bathroom and drink champagne so you can deal with the hostesses' attitudes.
Don't let the pawn shop in the front fool you, open the doors and enter a fan resto and lounge.
This spot is an awesome speakeasy!!! Great decor and wonderful atmosphere.
If they are making you wait in line at the door to get into the bar, just call and make a restaurant reservation, take a walk around the block, show up for your dinner reservation, then never eat
Get the box of doughnuts - you will not regret
For drinks, don't stay at the crowded downstairs. Go straight upstairs for comfortable couches and a glass of Sapphire Seventy-Five.
Lobster tacos. Must.
Free champagne in the downstairs women's restroom every night! (girls only)
The Manhattans are well made here. This place is literally another world. Make sure you wear your best.
Get the molten chocolate bread pudding if you have any room after dinner..Also, dont forget the champagne in the ladies room, genious idea!
Make sure you get a Golden Peacock and Ruby Mojito. Not to be missed
Must have the chicken fried oysters! Delish!
free champagne in the ladies restroom! lounge on the 60s' chic furniture and don't forget to tip your bathroom attendant.
Where beauty, food and ambiance come together perfectly in NYC!
The decor, food, and presentation are impeccable. (Parsnip ravioli! Uffie in the background!) Avoid, (or aim for,) weekends, when you may bump into someone you've read about on page six.
see and be seen. This place can turn a boring night into some glittery fun. Nothing is usual at Beauty and Essex. Expect to dine next to some great looking people.
Girls - If you don't feel like shelling out loads of dough on overpriced (albeit delicious) cocktails, head on down to the ladies room for free champagne!
jewels on toast, chicken fried oysters worth getting. Don't miss champagne in the bathroom ladies!
Thank you Mikaela! This place is just awesome! Beautiful place, Beautiful people, great ambiance and scrumptious food! Highly recommended.
Hidden behind the rustic pawn shop!! Can't go wrong with Chicken Fried Oysters, Lobster 'Mac & Cheese' and Roasted Bone Marrow!! Balance with some Kale & Apple Salad!!! Excellent service and food!!
This bi-level space oozes early-sixties glam. There’s free-flowing pink champagne in the ladies’ room and crostini with creamy ricotta on the menu. Need we say more?
You feel like in the middle of a James Bond movie! It's awesome! And the cocktails and the food is really great!
Cool, sexy, delicious, intimate...great for small birthday parties, dates (and to meet new people), and girls night outs...We love it!
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Dumplings, Tuna Tacos, Yellowtail Crudo, General Tso's Monkfish, Doughnuts and Strawberry Shortcake are all delish
Try kate she's not to be missed
Free champagne in the restroom-- sold!
Apparently, there's free champagne in the ladies room. I don't get it but I did ask a lady to grab me one
Free champagne in the bathroom!! Also save room for dessert - bottomless chocolate pudding is to DIE for.
Complimentary pink Champagne in the ladies room, delicious small plates, lavish décor covering two floors, and fun music…what could be trendier?
Beautiful people, tufted sofas, killer cocktails, shared plates (try the grilled cheese with smoked bacon and tomato soup dumplings)—and complimentary pink champagne served in the ladies’ room.
Be sure to checkout the woman's restroom for a special treat.. This place was gorgeous inside.. The grey goose martini was delicious as we're the tomato soup Mac and cheese dumplings
Tried the bone marrow cuz i was feeling adventurous. Not terrible, but there are much better items on the menu
A chic pawn shop greets window shoppers, but those who venture in find a luxuriously decorated bar and restaurant serving roasted bone marrow on toast and lobster mac and cheese. - Green Guide Editor
I would never belong to a club that would accept me as a member.
Lobster tacos, soup dumplings, new york pretzels, Mac n cheese ... List goes on .. Orange jalapeño margarita ...
