Conscious and discriminating diners have discovered a “home away from home” at Essensia Restaurant at The Palms Hotel, and guests look forward to seasonal menu changes almost as much as Chef Julie Frans and her team do. No matter what the season, guests can always count on food that is clean, ingredient-focused, fresh, healthfully prepared, naturally colorful, and globally inspired. Essensia Restaurant has launched summer menus, featuring a variety of locally sourced produce, sustainably raised and/or caught meats and seafood, and featured produce grown and picked straight from the Chef’s edible garden.

Your Mom fed you, clothed you, and stayed up countless nights when you were sick. She put Band-Aids on your bruises, made up stories just so that you would fall asleep and was a good listener when you went through your first heartbreak. Her job included waking up early to prepare you for school, loaning you money when you spent yours on videogames, and pretending to be surprised when your softball team lost to a more talented rival.

A sip from a chilled glass of a spring cocktail is even more refreshing if it contains fresh-picked produce from a garden. So it is no surprise that Signature Chef, Julie Frans took the first step in harvesting an herb garden dedicated to Essensia’s kitchen and cocktail ingredients. These days, the craft of making cocktails can be easily compared to the art of cooking. Ingredients that come from local farmer’s markets or a garden, are the trend for those who take delight in the participation, and now drinking, organic and local food. It is no longer thought of as a chef-only territory.
