Looks like those rumors of Beauty & Essex taking on Sin City are becoming a reality. It’s confirmed that acclaimed restaurateur Chris Santos, with the backing of the TAO Group, is expanding his posh culinary empire to fall in line with the other high profile celebrity eateries out there. The Lower East Side’s epicurean destination will open its outpost at the Cosmopolitan luxury resort in Las Vegas, joining the ranks of its “restaurant collection,” if you will.
The initial opening of the Vegas iteration was slated for sometime at the end of 2015, but has now been pushed to an ambiguous “2016” time frame. No word on whether or not the faux pawn shop entryway and retro marquee will actually manifest out west. We assume so.
If successful, it also won’t be surprising to eventually see a Beauty & Essex Down Under. Not only does the TAO Group have a foothold in New York and Las Vegas, but they boast of high-end foodie operations in Sydney, Australia, as well. Only time will tell.
