A Lower East Side Tradition

Welcome to Essex, one of the Lower East Side’s first destination restaurants as well as a local favorite. Famous for the original Bottomless Brunch Party, our top-rated brunch is regularly included in lists of Best Brunches in New York City.  Guided by Chef Steffen Sander, who has helmed some of New York's top Michelin-Starred restaurants, our New American Dinner Menu showcases seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients, with expansive vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options as well as burgers & classic steakhouse fare.

After dinner Essex transforms into the ultimate nightlife destination, hosting late-night parties on weekends that promise unforgettable moments and electrifying ambiance.  For those seeking a midweek escape, our legendary Happy Hour features specials on cocktails and bar bites as well as $1.50 Oysters. Oyster aficionados flock to our Thursday Mega Happy hour with Dollar Oysters all night. 


An historic restaurant near me with a rich legacy spanning over 25 years, Essex is an integral part of the NYC's Lower East Side. Originally located in the Essex Street Market,  Essex embarked on a new chapter in 2019, relocating to the century-old Schapiro's Winery.

Our soaring new multi-level space has private and semi-private rooms for parties of 25 to 250 guests, including our mezzanine with a full-service bar.   Whether it's an intimate gathering, engagement party, bridal shower or a corporate affair, our versatile spaces cater to every occasion.  

Stay tuned as we unveil our forthcoming speakeasy in the winery’s cask cellar.   Plus, explore our New Brooklyn location, Evalyn's Tap House, a gastropub with 20 craft beers on draft and contemporary German pub fare.
