Well, it’s official. For nearly two years, rumors of Beauty & Essex taking over the Comme Ça space at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and now the resort announces that the brunch and dinner restaurant from Tao Group is officially coming.
Expect a 2016 opening of the restaurant that’s a partnership between Tao Group, which has Marquee at the resort, and Chris Santos, the chef who has appeared on Chopped and also owns New York City’s The Stanton Social.
On the Lower East Side in New York, Beauty & Essex serves up share plates and champagne brunches on the weekends. The restaurant also has a dress code that requests "upscale casual attire" and frowns on "shorts, hats, flip-flops, ripped jeans, or tank tops."
Comme Ça, the former David Myer French bistro, shuttered in March.
