What I love about BES the most is the surprise element. I have never been to any other restaurant where each night is an event. The DJs, the performances, the curated art which all add up to an incredible dining experience. AND the food is amazing, the fries are to die for. Get your tickets to BES before they're sold out for the night.

A Gastric Retreat for Artists and Art Enthusiast

I am the type of person who believes I'm in NYC, I can go to a different restaurant each night for years so why should I repeat the same place. Well I have found the reason in B.E.S. It's a place where it's not just the food but the ambiance and the people. The food is amazing at B.E.S. You simply can't go wrong with anything that you choose. Furthermore, the clientele can be chic, downtown artsy to sophisticated art dealer. I highly recommend B.E.S. Trust me you can't go wrong!!!

I am addicted to B.E.S - I find myself there having egg white omelet on every other Saturday ( somethimes in order to give my conservative Indian collectors a raw expierence of New York's extravagant fashion sense), I also go there with my girlfriends straight after work, we gossip and eat amazing healthy things like beet and goat cheese salad or ginger snapper and listen to the 80s disco. I love B.E.S at 6 or 7 o'clock before it becomes super busy - the restaurant feels like an artist's studio or a friend's place with unique comfortable furniture, books. But without doubt B.E.S is at its best at night, the restaurant works its magic, it seduces you, turns you on with music, naughty crowd, velvet curtains, candles, white flowers in the bathrooms, blond elf like waiters... beautiful girls in tight dresses in the middle of winter, art world divas, couples on a first date staring at each other... the mood is always full of anticipation. Then I order a chocolate lava cake! The food is amazing - a perfect foreplay for the story of adventure. p.s. the owner is surely the most handsome guy in NYC

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
