Nightlife fixture Matt Levine (The Eldridge) is behind this restaurant homage to old New York. An all-day deli serves Kossar's bagels, Guss' Pickles and Robicelli's cupcakes in the front. The back dining room features vintage photos from the Tenement Museum, a graffiti mural by the Tats Cru and a mix of antique furniture. Guests can order New American plates, like Manischewitz-braised short ribs with roasted leeks, espresso-crusted salmon with fennel and tomato, and the Loisaida Skirt Steak, which is marinated in a blend of Latin spices and topped with salsa verde and pico de gallo.

Love love love Sons of Essex! 

Went here for a birthday brunch and had an amazing time. Since there were a lot of us I was able to sample a little of everything. The pancakes and the breakfast pizza were my favorites but there was nothing that I didn't like.

Once we finished eating we just hung out for a bit listening to the music (hip hop) and before I knew it, it turned into a full blown party. 

Awesome time, will definitely be back.

Great for dinner with a bunch of girl friends or a cozy date. Interior is amazing and the cocktails are bomb. The jalapeno cucumber margarita is amazingggg. Food is actually decent sized portions for the price and easy to split and share. We got the truffle fries, sliders, chicken skewers, and the truffle mac and cheese and I'd eat it all again!

Sons of Essex is a great place for a fun brunch of dinner with interesting food options that are actually very good (and a great value for the menu prices). There is always a crowd here, so it is a very lively atmosphere, and located in LES, so great for going out afterwards. With the intimate setting, it is also great for winter - it feels very cozy inside - like a ski lodge gone awry (in a good way). It is also great for birthdays - they bring out a cake with a giant sparkler candle, which is quite the spectacle.
