Situated inside The Palms Hotel and Spa on Miami Beach, this gourmet restaurant features New American cuisine in a laid back garden atmosphere. At Essensia, it's all about using fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients, often times straight from the chef's own organic garden hidden behind the hotel's Tiki Bar. With a clear slant toward wanting guests to enjoy not only a sustainable but also a health-conscious and earth-friendly meal, you can bet there are wonderful menu options for vegans and vegetarians as well as omnivores. And when it comes to drinks, you'll be pleased to find organic and biodynamic wines, eco-conscious cocktails, and many local craft beers on the list. A phenomenal Sunday brunch with an extensive menu featuring everything from BLTA Benedict and Blue Corn Chilaquiles to Vegan Chocolate Mousse is not to be missed.
