December 14, 2016: Esenzi, a globally-influenced seafood restaurant by acclaimed chef Tim Butler, opens at Iniala Beach House in Phuket.
The menu will feature elevated renditions of classic seafood preparations, successfully fusing great food, service and an exceptional scene as it appeals to the tastes of today’s modern diner. Serving dishes that are both contemporary and sophisticated - seasonal tasting menus as well as signature a la carte options will be available with an emphasis on a sharable style of dining designed to cater to the varied palates of its international and well-heeled clientele.
The newly refurbished restaurant will match its sensory adventure with an alluring and hypnotic design ethos. The sleek dining room features some of the edgiest, all engrossing art in the restaurant world alongside sandy-hued timber floors and splashes of aqua and sea green from the ubiquitous wave ceiling.
The brainchild of Mark Weingard (Iniala Group) and Executive Chef, Tim Butler (EatMe, Bangkok), Esenzi will be the first venture outside of Bangkok for Mr Butler, who in recent years has been at the forefront of the emerging culinary scene in the city. A rising star on the global culinary stage for some time now, getting his start under Daniel Boulud in New York and moving on to open the renowned Providence in Los Angeles, before relocating to Bangkok. While helming the kitchen at EatMe restaurant, he gained international recognition by successfully steering it into the coveted ‘Asia 50 Best Restaurants’ by San Pellegrino and has continually climbed up the charts year on year where he is currently ranked No. 23.
With an incredible playlist, fused with the live ambience of our guests, Esenzi restaurant will begin initially with dinner, but lunch and Sunday brunch are in the pipeline.
