Beauty & Essex

146 Essex St.
Manhattan, NY 10002
Lower East Side


Hidden behind a functioning pawn shop, Beauty & Essex is a true gem on the Lower East Side and widely regarded as one of New York's most beautiful restaurants. Head inside and past the two-story crystal chandelier and settle in the sumptuous banquet seating for celebrity chef Chris Santos' signature menu of international small plates along with dry-aged steaks and raw bar offerings. Leave room for the restaurant's equally decadent desserts.
