“In the garden”
Our very own small herb garden provides the quint essential flavour to our bar drinks. At the Ellysian, our herb garden is not just the flavour, but rather the aroma, color, and texture to our beautifully crafted menus. The herb garden sets the tone for our signature drinks from dawn til’ dust. We have managed to sprinkle a few of these characters into our bar snacks as well.
