Pawn shop slash brunch-spot-to-be-seen Beauty and Essex @beautyandessex does not disappoint! Step inside and you’re met with a blinging pawn shop experience, step further through velvet curtains into a mahogany bar and then a restaurant overdosing on lower east side atmosphere… Sunday brunch is their game, but they’re also open for dinner or just drinks (cocktail list is colourful and I recommend the ‘Beauty Elixir’)
The menu is made to be shared so Mr Matt Dillon (who reps Real Housewives of New York star, Aviva Drescher) and I decided on the lemon blueberry scones (omg), scrambled eggs, chicken meatballs with ricotta (the best I’ve ever tasted) and a watermelon avocado salad. What a treat!
