Beauty & Essex- New York
The atmosphere of the space is both grand and intimate, moody and effervescent. Various rooms for lounging and dining unfold on two floors, like a large turn-of-the-century townhouse. Each room has its own unique elements that celebrate timeless jewelry designs and upscale jewelry stores.
The cuisine is multi-ethnic in inspiration, casually elegant, and designed for sharing at the table among friends and family. Where the Stanton Social"s menu is Chef Chris Santos' take on cocktail party classics and street foods from across the globe, Beauty & Essex is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.
Every bite of food was delicious from start to finish. I came here for my birthday/Restaurant Week and was not disappointed.
Great food and even better service (if that’s possible). We had a wonderful time!
the worst food in nyc for the highest prices. avoid at all costs
Great food, great atmosphere, would definitely come again.
I absolutely love this place. The vibe is just right, the food is delicious and so well presented, and the champagne brunch on the second level was everything. This was my second time visiting and I was just as pleased as I was the first time. And the grits. You absolutely have to try the grits!
I was so excited for my 1st time here. We arrived 15 minutes early and were sat down right away. The food was absolutely to die for, and so were the drinks. I highly recommend the beauty elixir. We spend $250 on brunch for 2, which is a bit expensive, but it was worth every penny & I cannot wait to go back. Our waitress was also very nice & had a great personality.
Great vibe, delicious appetizers and entrees. Craft cocktails are pricey, but worth it if that is what you are looking for.
It was great! The food was delicious, drinks were yummy & the music was too good. We loved it.
I wrote down that my boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary on the reservation note. We also then told our waitress who said they had something planned. Dinner was over and all she gave us was the check. Food was great, but service could have been better. Rather disappointed to say the least
Went for me and my girl friends 5 year anniversary. Food&drinks were delicious, staff was great and music was on point. Can’t wait to go back 😃
Trendy. Excellent speakeasy. I love it. Good looking people of Manhattan packing the place.
Went for boyfriend’s 32nd birthday. He was very impressed. He loved the food. Great place to wow someone!
I had a friend visiting from out of town. Everything was perfect.
Amazing as always. Going back this week. I’ve been getting delivery since it got cold out but it’s nice to eat there for a change
Everything was wonderful!!
Amazing food and amazing service. Such a special night!
Great place and overall exceptional - just felt very rushed.
Food was far better than I’ve heard and expected!
The room is great, service is well done, great drinks at the bar. All the food is available to share, tuna sashimi, bulgogi tacos, BBQ Fries were excellent, but the grilled cheese tomato soup dumpling is the star.
Tried the Spaghettini with soft fried egg that missed its mark. I will go back!
The chicken meatballs and brcolli are amazing!!!!!!
Went on a recommendation but was pretty disappointed. Two of our food choices were off the menu that night and we ended up having to go with our fourth wine choice, as their menu was also very limited that night. Not worth it for the price TBH. Might be better groups but I won't be back
We had a great time in this unique location - the food was great and small bites worked great for the group! (Non-food related - we thought the shop might be bigger - there was fun stuff to poke around, but we still had fun!)
very nice place to dinner
We went to celebrate my daughters birthday and had a great experience. Upon entering, we were so blown away. Love the entrance and decor. Waiters were so friendly and helpful and food was delicious! I wrote a comment when I made reservation, stating we were celebrating my daughters birthday and they brought over a small cake to mark the occasion! I would highly recommend Beauty and Essex! 5 stars!
Everything was done perfectly. Our waitress was excellent and attentive, gave us suggestions. Cocktails were delicious and crafted well. The food was as good as the cocktails!
One of the best meals In NY.
Fantastic atmosphere and great food. I will be back
My husband and I went for our 10 year wedding anniversary and had a great time! The food was amazing and the waiters brought us two glasses of Champagne and a cupcake with a candle to celebrate. Will love to go again!
We loved the surprise cake and candle to help celebrate a birthday! The food was unique and delicious. Very memorable atmosphere.
wonderful service... champagne in the basement was over the top perfection!!! everyone was so nice, and catered right to you! music was wonderful at the 10:15 dinner!! FOOD IS AMAZING AND FLAVORFUL!! perfect for sharing lots of appetizers, price is worth it.
Our experience was great the dumplings in tomato soup is outstanding ! And the 24oz ribeye is not to be played with I enjoyed every bit of it!...
Fantastically cool place. Great cocktail menu. Very reasonably priced yet really tasty and filling. Would definitely recommend the Ferris wheel dessert which was amazing. Overall I would highly recommend this place as it ticks all the boxes
Fabulous venue, great food, very attentive service. Such a fun place to celebrate a birthday!
Amazing everything. The wait was just a little long but not a big deal. The hostess was checking in on us.
The food and atmosphere are awesome, the servers are pretty rude
Cute place. Tiny portions, big prices. Everything we ate was great. Service was good. 25-35 year old vibe.
Made a reservation here for a birthday dinner and everything was as expected. The drinks were definitely amazing and every food choice made off the menu was outstanding.
Good food nice place
