About

Behind a handsome stone façade, the chefs at Essence Bar & Restaurant are flavoring seafood with the taste of the tropics. Coconut pours into pasta sauce and plantains dapple sides of fried rice. The spirit of Caribbean cuisine comes alive through dishes of oxtail, which rest beside an amalgam of juicy burgers, southern staples, and old-fashioned soul food at this laid-back eatery, where a convivial atmosphere reins supreme. As diners peruse the varied menu, live performers, including musicians, standup comics, and celebrity sneeze impressionists, vocalize their talents.
