It’s almost July and you know what that means in Miami – one more month until Miami Spice! The only thing is that this year, Essensia Restaurant lovers don’t need to wait until August! It’s time to open up those wallets and loosen up the waist bands in your favorite pants because Essensia’s pre-Miami Spice dinner menu begins in July! In preparation for our participation in Miami Spice, which officially kicks off August 1, Signature Chef Julie Frans and her team are offering a special dinner menu available every day in July and, like Miami Spice, priced at just $39 per person excluding tax and gratuity. How’s that for a deal?
Menu options include three appetizer choices: Summer In Miami with local mango, fresh hearts of palm, crispy coconut, spiced macadamia nuts, spicy cilantro dressing, Israeli Quinoa Salad with arugula, quinoa, cucumber, cranberry, hazelnut, grilled halloumi cheese, beet puree, harissa-tahini vinaigrette and Roasted Yellow Tomato Gazpacho with fresh avocado, cucumber, toasted pepitas. Entrées include Za’atar Spiced Loch Duart Salmon with black lentils with eggplant, zucchini, beet puree, cucumber yogurt, chermoula, Tandoori Spiced Chicken Skewers with saffron rice with peas, seared haricot verts, mango chutney, cilantro mint drizzle and Signature Eggplant Parmesan with breaded and sautéed eggplant, stacked with fresh ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan, roasted tomato-red pepper sauce, kale pesto. Dessert selections feature our Apricot Parfait, Spiced Flourless Chocolate Cake or Essensia’s Homemade Ice Cream or Sorbet.
More experienced Miami Spice-ers know that perusing the restaurant beforehand is requisite to choosing the menus worth the best value, while the less experienced can be clueless to where to begin. Well look no further, Essensia’s pre-Miami Spice dinner menu is guaranteed to give you a taste of what’s in store once we officially begin Restaurant month. Bon appétit!
