Since the recession began a few years ago, household discretionary spending has hit an all time low. Heading up the list of things to cut back on is usually the annual family vacations. Instead of expensive airline tickets and hotel stays, families are now substituting cheaper alternatives: driving to see relatives, having friends and relatives come to see them or waiting for special travel deals online. But an increasingly popular and surprisingly fun vacation alternative is the stay-at-home-vacation, otherwise known as the “staycation;” and The Palms Hotel & Spa offers Miami locals and Florida residents a few great options to choose from.
Depending on where you call home, winter may seem like an odd time to find seasonal fruits and vegetables that are native to where you live. But despite the recent chilly temperatures in South Florida, there’s still plenty of tasty, in-season produce that’s ripe for the picking.

Fall is a very exciting time for Essensia at The Palms Hotel & Spa.

It is also the time when Signature Chef Julie Frans re-designs the menus to feature what will be growing locally in our Winter Season. Read on for more details about our Winter menu items and Essensia’s own Organic Chef’s Garden, which was freshly replanted to produce some of the ingredients for Essensia’s new menus.
