It’s a Friday night, and you want to go out for dinner with friends but no parents. A great place to chill and dine is the Beauty Shop in Midtown. Although it may seem fancy at first, the servers are friendly and are welcoming towards you from the moment you enter the restaurant until the time you leave.

You may want to start off the night with some fries, which are made with truffle oil and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. These fries are heaven on earth.

If you order the summer bowl, you may be extremely surprised to see a crab decorate a bowl of mussels and clams. Additionally, the bottom of the bowl was filled with an extremely citrusy, fishy and minty broth. Whatever you do, do not drink this. You’ll thank me later.

You may have to saw away at the duck, but it is absolutely worth it. You will find that, as you take bite and chew, you will taste honey, sugar and chicken. Included with the duck is a pile of spicy onion straws and grilled okra.

You may describe the cheese pasta as buttery and creamy with a kick of tomato, squash, and, of course, cheese. You will polish your bowl in six minutes and you will not regret one second of it.

No matter what else you do, please finish off the night with some dessert. The butter and sugar crepes, caramel cake and crème brûlée are highly recommended.

The butter and sugar crepes tasted like pancakes with maple syrup. These two crepes were one step closer to world peace. The caramel slice of heaven was a moist, three-layer vanilla base with powdered sugar sprinkled on top.

Finally, the crème brûlée is caramelized to perfection with pink sugar. The cup of custard is the exact texture you dream about.

You may find the parking at the Beauty Shop to be an issue, but being able to walk around and discover all of the cool shops around Midtown is an unexpected delight. If you are on a date, you can even have some extra time with that special someone! (Wink, wink)

Regardless of what you order or when you go, it is guaranteed that you will leave the Beauty Shop with your hunger satisfied.
