Beauty & Essex offers new Sunday brunch in Hollywood
Tao’s Beauty & Essex restaurant in Hollywood has launched a lavish new Sunday brunch.
The 10,000-square-foot complex includes a front pawn-inspired retail store stocked with guitars, vintage jewelry, art, and other collectibles. Diners enter through the boutique which leads to a variety of lounges and dining rooms.
The downstairs living room is sleek in daylight with purple suede bar chairs, gold and crystal light fixtures, and burgundy loveseats and sofas. The large, dark main dining room features elegant pearl chandeliers, murals depicting swirling ballerinas, antique decor, comfy tan leather sofas, round wooden tables, and a 20-foot oval skylight. The outdoor patio is beautiful and relaxing for a mid-day brunch.
The cocktail menu contains a variety of homemade choices, including the new Cinnamon Toast Crunk with brandy, almond milk, vanilla nectar, and crispy cinnamon cereal; Bubbles and Berries with champagne, vodka, St. Germain and strawberries; the Beauty Elixir with gin, cucumber and strawberry rosé sparkling wine and the Old Dirty Bramble with tequila, blackberries, honey, ginger and lemon juice. The bar also offers many classic cocktails and unlimited mimosas.
We loved the wide variety of comfort food served in easy-to-share formats, the delicious selection of drinks and the lovely indoor and outdoor atmosphere. Beauty and Essex is located at 1615 N. Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood. Brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Reservations at 323.676.8880.
