Direct from New York's Lower East Side and from the team behind Vegas staples TAO Asian Bistro & LAVO Italian Restaurant, Beauty & Essex is an expansive-yet-intimate restaurant, bar, & lounge in the heart of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.


Various rooms for lounging, dining, and discovery unfold across 10,000 square feet, inspired by the Lower East Side's original town-house location. 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. Chef Chris Santos' eclectic menu is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.

The bone marrow dish is to die for! And the french fries are also very crisp and tasty. We ordered a variety of dishes and, and with the exception of the cauliflowers, everything else was good. A bit loud but very nice decor and ambiance nevertheless.

One of the best restaurants in Vegas! The Korean fried chicken was a hit, along with bao burgers and roasted cauliflower. Flavors were so unique, will be back for more!

Been to the NYC location so just had to try Las Vegas. Staff was friendly and helpful, the menu was fabulous! Love the small plate idea. Brought a guest who was not originally on board but just loved the place. One guest was vegetarian and the chef prepared dishes to meet our needs.

The setting is a very cozy environment. However some of the wait staff not warm and fuzzy. The food is ok-average. The salad was over dressed too vinegary. The pasta dish was very good. Sashimi was very good. Overall a good place. But could be better.

Work on your carrot cake. The cake was very dry and not moist at all. The cream cheese frosting was excellent.

Beauty and Essex is such a great little gem at the Cosmopolitan hotel! I love the ambiance and the food never disappoints. They have a great dink and wine menu as well. Perfect spot for a celebration or just a night out with friends. The plates are family style and meant to order a few options to share. One of my favorite spots to bring friends visiting Las Vegas!

One of my favorite dining experiences so far. Although the menu doesn't indicate it, they will split all dishes amng your entire party (we were 6), so we got to try a variety of dishes. Each dish that was brought out was better than the last.

The food was TERRIBLE and so were our cocktails. I don’t know what the hype is about this restaurant as it was one of the worst restaurants we have ever been to in the states. I wouldn’t even paid $5 for the food or cocktails we got last night. Don’t even bother, save your money!

I could never say enough good things about this restaurant. I travel extensively and I think this is the best restaurant I've ever dined in! The only exception might be their New York location. The food/menu is incredible - different, inventive, delicious. The service is outstanding - always has been. The ambiance - from the way you enter the restaurant to the dining experience itself is unique and makes even a simple evening out sensational. The prices are reasonable, the wine list extensive and drink options plentiful! Don't miss this place!

This restaurant won this foodie over. You have to try the artichoke flatbread or broccolini. The atmosphere is fancy but not too fancy. You can wear jeans or have a fancy night out with the girls.

Chef SANTOS ROCKS! When my friends asked me to explain the food I said whatever you think it will be ... It's 10,000 times more amazing with a huge twist on the standard version. The items are never what's expected. Always better and more creative!

The service staff was very available and prompt and eloquent. This place was sexy and hidden. It is a place for those who are truly in the know of what is good food, service and cosmopolitan experience. The energy was subtle but alive at the same time. I highly recommend this place for anyone interested in inspired meals.
