Beauty & Essex…& Desserts
I already love Stanton Social and it’s sister restaurant, Beauty & Essex, did not disappoint. In fact, the whole meal impressed me. I chose the Devil’s Food Layer Cake and Black Bottom Butterscotch Pot de Crème. The cake blew me away. I really wasn’t expecting much, but when I saw almost every table around me order it, I knew there was something going on. With vanilla mascarpone fillng and milk ice cream, this cake was mouth-watering. It was gooey and chewy with fresh chocolate icing. It’s a great mini cake size to share with everyone at the table and so rich with creaminess. The butterscotch, I would describe, was like the highest end version of Jello butterscotch swirl pudding. I’m not a huge butterscotch fan, but I could tell this was something spectacular. SO thick and creamy with cinnamon spoons to dip. This is the ultimate butterscotch lover’s treat. Hands down, everything my friends and I had at the table, food included, was above and beyond. Essex street has a beauty on it’s hands.
