Beauty & Essex

Beauty & Essex is an awesome experience that you have to have at least once. This venue combines elegant surroundings, carefully concocted cocktails and small plates of flavorful deliciousness.  We wined, we dined and my favorite part of the evening was finding a cute little champagne bar parked in the ladies restroom where I was offered a complimentary glass of champagne while I washed my hands.

Something to amuse your bouche haha

Tuna Poke Wonton Tacos  $16
(my favorite!) 

Grilled cheese, smoked bacon and tomato soup dumplings  $14
(so good we had to order them twice!) 

Lobster Tacos  $21
(disappointing, the flavor of the lobster was lost in the batter, you barely could taste the lobster at all) 

Duck Pizzetta $16
(savory and tangy)

Ribs with vegetable lo mein lol??

(This is in their entree section.  They have standard size entrees as well, although I think it's a lot more fun to get small plates and share.  The ribs were tasty but it just didn't make any sense that this is on their menu at all. The menu went from American noveau cuisine to the chinese place around the corner in a second, it was kind of comical.  I didn't make note of the cost of this dish and it's not on their menu online.)
