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.
I wish we had places like this in Dallas! Love the romantic atmosphere but fun party clubby at the same time! A must visit in NYC!
Excellent food. Tacky decorations.
Awesome food, drinks and party atmosphere
Went here for my 30th bday. Great venue, amazing food, and pink champagne in the girls bathroom!
Great bar with amazing tapas. I have been here multiple times and found it best to order a bunch of tapas and skip the larger main courses.
Yes, it's true, complimentary pink champagne is served in the ladies only lounge/restroom downstairs
The entrance is fun. But if you're looking for an authentic experience, this is not the place! Awful music (top charts type, and loud) and lacks character in general. Attracts tourists.
Not many better restaurant experiences than this in the city. Perfect food, service, atmosphere. Known as a brunch spot but should be known for its dinner!
Mac & cheese and tomato soup has never been so elegant
so this restaurant's interior is gorgeous and I will definitely be coming here again. came for brunch (next time dinner!) - especially loved the cheese and bacon dumplings and chocolate croissants!
Food was amazing. Fun atmosphere. Make sure to check out the bathrooms
Best brunch I've ever had! Lemon & blackberry pancakes, red velvet waffles, cubano sandwiches, grilled cheese dumplings were all amazing! Loved the Geoffrey cocktail as well!
Find the furry walls
Save room for the Guinness and red velvet mini cupcakes ✨
8/10. I could not fault any dish. The 8 rating is due to the atmosphere. The music was ridiculously loud (I like to hear the person I am talking to) and it was very hot inside.
You cannot go wrong with the kale Apple salad, lobster tacos, or grilled cheese tomato soup bites
Great hidden gem! Fun and fancy, really hip!
If you come with a group, order your drink at the at. They won't do separate receipts. They charge you all as one
Bring some cash to the bathroom
Free champagne in the bathroom
One visit is not enough. Order everything.
Incredibly delicious and creative food. It's supposed to be tapas style but the main dishes are good portions. You should try a few starters as well though cos they're just that good.
Not much of a speakeasy.
Dinner with some groove. Grilled cheese and tomato soup dumpling is sooo delicious.
Loved every dish we got here. The Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Dumplings are a MUST
Can't go wrong with a box of doughnuts. The beauty elixir also goes down like water 👌
Fun semi hidden entrance, great very strong drinks, absolutely fantastic food across the board. Lobster tacos, spare ribs meatballs... Yum
Rosé champagne in the bathroom.
For all you trendy and bougie hipsters
Can't speak to brunch. As another tip said, "Avoid on weekend nights". Too douchey and pricey ($18+tax+tip for an old fashioned?)
Food and drinks are really good! Tried pink panther grilled octopus tomato soup dumpling but gets super packed after 9 and too much a scene
The burger is definitely one of the best I've tasted. I ordered it rare and it was cooked perfectly. Also, the hot chocolate jägermeister shots are insanely delicious.
Avoid on weekend nights unless you're willing to shell out lots of money, pop in to check out the decor and high ceilings then head to Beauty Bar
Beauty and Essex never fails for groups- champagne in the ladies room is always a hit.
Fish tacos. Sliders. Cocktails. Love.
One of the best fancy date spots downtown. Unusual and well crafted cocktails and shareable plates.
A hidden place, u can't see from outside that it s a bar as many years ago when there were a dry law. Nice music&wine, 2 floors, so it can be suitable for dates and for big crowds.
Sweet potato ravioli, avocado toast and all the Rioja you can drink
Free champagne .. does everyone get this?
The pumpkin ravioli and the chocolate cake
T.I. made his song "No Mediocre" after eating here. Stay away from the food. Atmosphere is decent though. (But thumbs down).
Classy! They make great drinks
Awesome brunch - great for groups. Interesting decor, good service. Eggs Benedict was cooked perfectly, 3 eggs on small bits of toast & thin slices of ham. Fireball hot cocoa shot? Yes please.
Great brunch in a crazy setting. Price is very reasonable for the quality, everything is delicious.
Had a great brunch and cocktails with friends here. The highlight of the meal was the grilled cheese smoke bacon and tomato soup dumplings.
Top picks: tuna tacos, seared tuna and box of donuts
free champagne in the lady's bathroom!
