With a courtyard on the first floor and a terrace on the second, the brand has for the first time offered outdoor seating. A 20-foot oval skylight in the double-height main dining room provides natural light, while a lavish private dining room enables a more personal eating experience.
Beauty And Essex Restaurant Los Angeles
Beauty & Essex is yet another haphazard club-restaurant that falls under the Tao Group’s vast empire. It’s in the same facility as Tao in Hollywood, but it has a bland eating area and a menu full of foods we assumed were only offered on overseas flights. It’s remarkable that a location hosted by one of the biggest nightlife firms in the world can be so breathtakingly boring even though there are no outwardly bad elements. If you want to thank yourself for getting through a meal without dozing off, there is a jewellery store open up front.
Celebrity chef Chris Santos’ iconic eatery, Beauty and Essex LA, is situated in the centre of Hollywood’s entertainment area. The ambitiously designed restaurant blends in with the neighborhood’s nightlife-oriented establishments, including the nearby TAO and Dream Hotel and the soon-to-be-opened Thompson and Tommie hotels.
Visitors must pass through a high-end collector’s shop in order to enter Beauty and Essex LA, which has a trompe l’oeil entrance off a pedestrian alley. Once inside, the 10,250 square foot interior unfolds into a series of jewel-like dining rooms and leisure areas.
Design for Beauty & Essex LA pays homage to its classic look.
