Price: Expensive
• Unspecified • Lower East Side
Booked 86 times today
Beauty & Essex has an innovative design that starts in the restaurant’s entrance, a well-curated modern-day pawn shop replete with a saxophone, boom­box, quirky artifacts, vintage treasures, and an eclectic array of “one-off” pieces of jewelry. Continuing past the pawnshop, guests encounter a grand, circular staircase wrapped around a two-story custom chandelier, but only the adventurous will discover all that Beauty & Essex has to offer. With four distinct dining rooms (one private), two bars, a lounge, and a women’s bathroom complete with a salon including a luxurious sofa, and antique perfume bottles. The cuisine, much like the design, is intended to set a new course. Chef Chris Santos was one of the pioneers of the small, share plate dining trend that has swept the nation, and with the Beauty & Essex menu, he once again has created waves on the food scene.

Ivan Ramen celebrates Ivan’s creativity through the lens of his life journey. His effortless blending of: his New York roots, his classic French training, and his deep understanding of Japan, color the menu and the restaurant.

    Celebrated a bday with a big group of friends. Everyone made us feel so welcome and we had a fabulous time. Great ambience, vibe, and we loved all the shareable food options. We also had a vegetarian and a vegan in our group, and there were more than enough options that we all loved. Actually, I think the vegan options were some of the most tastiest. I highly recommend especially for a group. Our servers were great and very attentive but not overly so as they let us stay and have fun without rushing us through the dinner. we were there for well over two hours. We’ll definitely return.

    Very good food. The wait staff is terrific. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was because my husband and I had to shout to hear each other.

    There is no place like Bondst. I have been there for 25 years and the food and service is consistently exceptional. It is indeed very expensive but it very high quality on all accounts.
