Beauty & Essex is a restaurant and lounge from Chef Chris Santos and TAO Group. This marks the second location of the New York City establishment that originated in 2010 from the chef who pioneered the small, share plate dining trend that has swept the nation.
The menu from Santos, a celebrity chef judge on The Food Network hit series “Chopped,” echoes the multi-ethnic signature dishes of the New York City location and features additional culinary offerings exclusive to Las Vegas including Short Rib ‘Mac & Cheese’, Spring Pea Agnolotti and Nicoise Style Tuna au Poivre. New York City favorites consist of Tuna Poke Wonton Tacos, Thai Style Crispy Shrimp, Tomato Tartare, Roasted Bone Marrow, Oven Braised Chicken Meatballs and more.
Spanning 10,000 square feet, the Rockwell Group-designed space celebrates the exquisite beauty of jewels. With over 230 seats for dining, and another 90 seats in the bar and lounge, the restaurant explores jewels in all forms—from pearls and gemstones to vintage jewelry boxes, to antique and heirloom pieces.
