Food Philosophy

We want our guests to:

  • Savor exceptional farm-to-table cuisine that nourishes the body and replenishes the soul
  • Share a warm, inspired setting with friends or someone special
  • Delight in the fresh bounty of the land and immerse in a culinary experience that offers explosive flavors, rich produce and boldly seasoned proteins paired with crisp inviting textures
  • An experience that indulges the palate, seduces the senses and feeds your passions.

Our guests desire healthier gourmet food and the culinary team at Essense has risen to the challenge of building a menu that can be prepared and cooked in a consistent manner. We provide a large enough menu to enable our customers to have a real choice – from pure culinary indulgences to whole calorie portion sized selections.  Furthermore, we offer shared plates in a romantic setting or with a group of friends that follows the communal dining trends popular today and provides menu variety consistent with organic, all-natural or sustainable practices whenever possible.
