"We visit from Los Angeles regularly and always eat at USC. This time I even bought the cookbook to try to duplicate some of their wonderful food. Never had a dish here that wasn't fantastic. Service is also wonderful...warm, friendly, and efficient. They seat you on time, and you never feel rushed. The spacing of the tables is also very nice, not too close together. Highly recommend eating here. You won't be disappointed and you'll probably be regulars!"

From the team behind The Stanton Social comes Beauty & Essex, a grand 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge in the heart of the lower east side.<br><br><br />The atmosphere of the space is both grand and intimate, moody and effervescent. Various rooms for lounging and dining unfold on two floors, like a large turn-of-the-century townhouse. Each room has its own unique elements that celebrate timeless jewelry designs and upscale jewelry stores.<br><br><br />The cuisine is multi-ethnic in inspiration, casually elegant, and designed for sharing at the table among friends and family. Where the Stanton Social"s menu is Chef Chris Santos' take on cocktail party classics and street foods from across the globe, Beauty & Essex is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.

"Loved Beauty and Essex. Its such a surprise when you walk through the pawn shop into the bar, which was packed with fun-loving good looking people. The DJ was great the night we were there...I kept wanting to dance! Lots of groups of women (bachelorette parties??) and a lot of couples too. The food was great. Ordered 5 items and it was the perfect amount. The chicken meatballs were sensational, and order them with the parsnips! A surprising but delicious combination. Such a fun place, that doesn't rely on its hipness, but actually serves great food. Will go back!"

Daniel Boulud’s namesake restaurant features contemporary, seasonal French cuisine in a setting that combines striking neoclassical architecture with elegant modern furnishings. The sophisticated bar and lounge are a welcoming spot for before and after dinner drinks.

"My husband and I have heard about how amazing this restaurant is, and we couldn't be happier that we decided to splurge. It was absolutely worth it. The dining room was breathtaking, with tables spaced far apart from one another with beautiful decor. The service was beyond perfect. The staff was so professional, without any attitude whatsoever. They truly made us feel that they were thrilled to have us as their guests. Every course was beautiful and unbelievably delicious. The scallops as an appetizer were the best I've ever eaten. The duo of beef was also wonderful. They kept bringing out little plates to enjoy between courses, and everything was incredible. I can't recommend Daniel enough. We will return."

"Everytime my husband and I come to NYC we must go to Balthazar. We know we will eat wonderful food in a lively environment, that is unpretentious and friendly. Our first time for lunch and we weren't disappointed. The French onion soup was a highlight, and the oysters are always perfect. Would definitely recommend this restaurant."
