Meeting friends at the Beauty & Essex restaurant located at 146 Essex Street on the Lower East Side in Manhattan was fun. As you enter, you’ll encounter a novel setting — vintage jewelry and musical instruments available for purchase.
We met after 8 p.m., so a Kale and Apple Salad with apple cider vinaigrette, pancetta, candied pecan, and shaved goat cheese seemed right.
A side of fresh, hot Focaccia Bread was the perfect accompaniment.
