We were out to celebrate and with so many choices in NYC, how do you choose? Beauty and Essex is a unique restaurant with a very cool decor and outstanding food. Everyone one in our group loved and raved about it. The food is delicious and highly flavorful. It is tapas style and each course was exciting to try. We ordered a lot of dishes and can honestly say that we were WOWed each time. Five Star Service, with Exceptional Food and decor. A true NYC GEM.

Fun, loud and for the young, it remains a New York City attraction for visitors and kids looking for something 'cool'. It was novel when it opened 9 years ago. For first timers it is still a scene.

The access, through an unmarked and inauspicious door at the rear of an antique shop ( guarded by a rather large man) sets the tone.

The room is large low and windowless, and the noise level probably damages your hearing. But you dont care. You feel like this place is a secret speakeasy known only to you and populated largely by the upper echelons of the NY crime syndicates. The atmosphere is filled with liquor and testosterone in equal measure and we loved it

The food and service are both top notch

The food was amazing. This place is not overrated in the least! Great service, drink selection, and food. Can’t wait to go back.
