Beauty and Essex is all about the details of the experience. This Lower East Side Party Restaurant with a cool upstairs bar starts your journey with the entrance through a glamorous pawn shop with vintage jewelry and electric guitars, then leads you through the epic dining room with high ceilings, booths, major flowers and chandeliers. Even the bathrooms are stunning, retro and memorable.
The food is equally awesome; great for a sexy date or a party night out with friends. The modern international party menu with standards like Tuna Sashimi, Raw Tuna Tacos, Asian Spice Rubbed Pork Ribs and Steaks to share serve the best flavors from Asia and Europe. They also have some great original dishes like Tomato Tartare and Chicken Fried Oysters.
The music is loud so unless its a seductive whisper to your date, you’ll need to speak up to the group. Try and get a table in the main dining room to really feel the magnificence of the room.

WHAT TO WEAR?
Beauty and Essex is the perfect example of top end cooking technique, downtown style, New York party scene and international fusion cuisine. Keep it cool, sexy and understated with great fabrics like wool and felt and wear grey and blacks. Mix up a loose layer on top and tight layer underneath like this Max Mara Jacket and H&M dress (beat you didn’t think it was H&M). Add a cool earring with a skull or feather to match the downtown scene like these ones from Maje.
They also have a dress code for the basics- Amen!:
“OUR DRESS CODE: We have recently issued a dress code policy. We suggest upscale casual attire and will no longer allow admittance to those wearing shorts, hats, flip-flops, ripped jeans, or tank tops.”
