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 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!
FUN FACT: They serve pink champagne in the ladies restroom, which definitely makes the wait more bearable.
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.
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
The Manhattans are well made here. This place is literally another world. Make sure you wear your best.
Get the box of doughnuts - you will not regret
Must have the chicken fried oysters! Delish!
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)
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!
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
Thank you Mikaela! This place is just awesome! Beautiful place, Beautiful people, great ambiance and scrumptious food! Highly recommended.
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
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.
Cool, sexy, delicious, intimate...great for small birthday parties, dates (and to meet new people), and girls night outs...We love it!
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.
jewels on toast, chicken fried oysters worth getting. Don't miss champagne in the bathroom ladies!
Free champagne in the bathroom!! Also save room for dessert - bottomless chocolate pudding is to DIE for.
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.
Salt and vinegar fries are a crowd pleaser, PB&J creme brûlée is a panty dropper, wear black
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?
I would never belong to a club that would accept me as a member.
You feel like in the middle of a James Bond movie! It's awesome! And the cocktails and the food is really great!
The decor screams luxury and decadence, and a visit to the ladies’ room gets a gratis glass of bubbly (sometimes cava, sometimes prosecco, sometimes Champagne).
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
One of my very favorite NY restaurants, the scene is exciting and the food is delicious. Great kale salad, excellent basil pesto ravioli, Lobster Tacos and the box of donuts for dessert is unique.
amazing food and service and interior. follow the reco of a waiter, won't regret it
Complimentary pink Champagne in the ladies room, delicious small plates, lavish décor covering two floors, and fun music…what could be trendier?
