About The Essex

VOTED "BEST NEW RESTAURANT" 2018

YANKEE MAGAZINE!

 

Passion, love and innovation fuel our vision to bring a full spectrum experience to our guests. We value the foundation of fine dining: from classic French technique to reverence for ingredients.

 

Experience regional American cuisine that draws inspiration from the land, sea and deep heritage of the Connecticut River Valley, alongside a legion of international flavors. The Essex marks the transition between old New England charm and upscale elegance; a time that calls for refreshment and rejuvenation. Steeped in the rich heritage of the Connecticut River Valley, the land infuses our culinary vision with the freshest locally-sourced products available from farm and sea. We call on traditions from around the world, as well as the avant-garde to represent both the nostalgic and the modern through progressive interpretations of timeless dishes.
