Last week, I hit up the uber trendy Beauty & Essex on the Lower East Side with some lovely lady pals for a fun girly dinner. After all, there were birthdays and job changes to be celebrated!
Behind the restaurant's pawn shop entrance, lies a world of decadent cocktails, delicious small plates and some seriously flashy decor. A fur wall, a pearl chandelier and an upstairs dining room decorated with framed gold lockets? Yes, please!

My verdict? Go there and be happy, ladies (and gentlemen, as well).
But don't take my word for it (if you caught that Reading Rainbow reference say "LeVar Burton!"). Check out all the delicious details on the always scrumptious food blog eat your chow.
