Tonight I dined at Beauty and Essex. I have been fan of Stanton Social for years and upon hearing of this new restaurant in the Lower East Side I was very excited. Chris Santos has outdone himself. The menu is composed of small plates; perfect for sharing. Great place to go on a date. To find a date; I suggest you go if you are a guy. While checking out who was there it seemed like every single girl in NYC was there in her best downtown-chic garb. The decor is luxurious with chandeliers at very turn, and just when you think it can't get any better you are handed a complimentary glass of champagne in the wash room. Stop by the lounge upstairs before or after dinner, very cool.
