i'm an 80s baby and the 90s raised me. So for me whats not to love about this spot?! Good food and even greater music. The night before I was at wedding in Jersey. One of the homies suggested we go to Sons of Essex before heading to the airport/train stations/freeways. Ended up kickin it with the big homies Tupac, Biggie, and ATCQ! Dj was dishing out 90s bangers while the kitchen was making me phatter. I went with the chicken biscuit and a side of bacon. Also shared a bunch of other dishes too. I've told other homies to go and they all agree that's it's one of their favorite spots in NYC now.

Lapin and I came here for brunch on Sunday. We made reservations but still had to wait 10 minutes to be seated at the bar. The restaurant itself wasn't very packed. Our waiter was attentive but forgetful. We asked for the bill three times until we put on our jackets to indicate we are ready to leave ( at that point we still didn’t get our bill and we were annoyed). Lapin ordered a Bellini and I ordered a Mimosa. They were served in thin plastic flutes, which seems a bit odd. They were okay but tasted a bit watered down like there was more juice than liquor. Lapin ordered the Fried Chicken ($22) and I ordered the Lobster Benedict ($17 or $19). The food came out pretty quickly and came out warm. The fried chicken was generous portion. It was tasty (lacked a bit seasoning/salt) but a bit dry. I suspect this was pre-made and warmed up prior to serving. The cornbread was crumbly but with the spicy honey it was delicious. I even stole a bit for my lobster benedict. The lobster benedict was meh until I added some salt. The potatoes came out burnt to char; I wasn’t a fan. However, I was able to trade Lapin the potatoes for some of his butter. The food was okay but they had generous portions. The staff was very attentive but they seemed to be juggling too many things at once. The music was pretty awesome, too. Singing along to “old school” hip-hop is always fun, more fun if one was tipsy and they have no shame. However, I am not sure if we would visit again.

The .50 wings were horrible and left an after taste in my mouth. Half off of Wine and Whiskey was good.

Glorified dive. Not unlike Hair of the Dog, Down the Hatch, etc. But definitely less douchey.

Son's of Essex was literally the best place I have ever gone to for brunch. Besides the food being outstandingly delicious the service was extremely out of this world! The food was brought out right away. My ladies and I went out all week to celebrate a birthday and out of all of the places we went to this place was the most memorable. Our server Jessie was one of the best I've come across and I actually work in the restaurant business. This place is a MUST GO! I will definitely be back! Amazing team, keep up the good work!

It's a young crowd and a nice atmosphere to grab a drink or some food. Try a whiskey cocktail.

Not as fancy as Beauty & Essex across the street, but it's nice for getting some beers in a chill speakeasy environment!

This place is an absolute trap for clueless tourists who don't know better. Inflated prices, rubbery food, watered down drinks, and terrible cheesy DJs. A dozen better options all within a block walk.
