Two Cuties Check Out Gay Night at Beauty and Essex

Last night, models and frequent BlackBook contributors Carlos Santolalla and John Tuite (aka @jarlos420) popped by Beauty & Essex in NYC to check out the scene for the restaurant’s new gay night.

The meal was great, as was the scene. Check out what they ate, below.

photo 5 Favorite appetizer? The Duck Pizzeta with tamarind, queso fresco, and salsa verde.

photo 8 Yummm Pan Roasted Scallops with smoked tomato and sweet pea risotto.

photo 9Major. The Beauty & Essex Burger with roasted garlic aioli, beefsteak tomato, goat feta, and bbq fries. The vinegar fries are actually better though.

Very sexy grilled salmon with sherry vinegar glaze, pearl couscous, red chard, and sunchoke puree.

All the desserts looked good, but being gay night, the Passion Cream seems like the winner!

Upstairs at Beauty & Essex on Mondays. Beauty & Essex is located at 146 Essex Street, NYC.
