The best restaurant in Essex and shoreline Connecticut offering fresh local seasonal farm to table food in a fun energetic setting. The Essex Restaurant brings excitement to your dining experience.
Our dinner menu does not feature traditional appetizers and entrees, rather a 'tapas' style' approach meant to share smaller plates. as you work down the menu the sizes grow as does the price. Wrapped around our fully open kitchens, The Essex is a world of action. Focused on our locally sourced products from the New England Family Farms, Fishermen, and our on site vertical hydroponic garden, we provide an energetic environment with an upscale, casual, a la carte style cuisine that plays with the flavor profiles and techniques from around the world, while staying rooted in classic concepts. Eat, drink and be merry!
