Though this Lower East Side spot also serves dinner, it’s best known for its boozy brunch. For just $31.95, you get a choice of entree and as many mimosas, screwdrivers or Bloody Marys as you can drink in an hour and a half. Brunch entrees include The Aristocrat—potato pancakes topped with smoked salmon, sour cream, caviar and poached eggs—and Mexican matzo brei with scrambled eggs, black beans and avocado pico de gallo, in addition to more traditional options like omelets, eggs benedict and avocado toast. At dinner, choose from entrees such as gnocchi with tomato cream sauce and shrimp ($21), duck leg confit with baby bok choy and parsnip mash ($24) and blackened catfish with shrimp, potato and scallion hash ($22).
We offer happy hour with half-price drinks Monday-Friday 5-8pm, Thursday 5-12pm, and Sundays 6-10pm.

Boozy brunch baes unite! Brunch options range from a healthier pairing of lox, poached eggs, caviar and potato pancakes to heavier selections like cheesy shrimp and grits. Which brings me to my main points: CHEESY SHRIMP AND BACON GRITS. I could binge eat these cheesy bacon grits like I binge ate cookie dough at middle school sleepovers. The accompanying biscuit is fresh and steamy. Essex is a fun vibe wit yummy bites.
