"With an Ever-Changing Menu and Familiar Feel, The Essex Takes Inspiration from the River Community"
"The Essex: An Evolving Menu In An Elegant Atmosphere"
Our regional American cuisine takes local ingredients and plays with flavor profiles and techniques from around the world. The dinner menu at The Essex does not feature traditional appetizers and entrees, rather we use a ´tapas´style approach. This means small plates are meant to shared; you work down the menu, the size of the plates grow. Eat, drink and be merry!
