At Beauty & Essex, the hot restaurant/lounge/shop owned by Rich Wolf, Peter Kane and Chris Santos, and situated in a turn-of-the-century townhouse in NYC’s Lower Ease Side, dining has been elevated to a whole new level. Here, the concept is bold as bold as the food — delicious multi-ethnic shared plates, from veggie delights to perfect steaks.

“The entire menu is approachable, yet sophisticated,” Chris tells OK!.

Among the highlights are cocktails with names like Emerald Gimlet, to evoke the jewelry for sale in the adjoining pawn shop.

For stars like Kim Kardashian — who get to do what they love best here: engage in one-stop shopping and dining — Beauty & Essex is hard to resist!
