The AVENUEinsider loves the hidden gem of a  restaurant Beauty & Essex on the Lower East Side. To get inside the glamorous, ornate eatery, you pass through what looks like a very chic pawn shop.

The new curator of the Beauty & Essex pawnshop is 22-year-old Lauren Kaminsky, who was actually born and raised in Long Island in a family of pawnbrokers – her grandfather started Gem Pawnbrokers in 1947. Kaminsky grew up scouring consignment stores and loving vintage jewelry – a passion she brings to Beauty & Essex’s very cool pawn shop which is definitely worth a shop pre or post dinner.
