Ella Dining Room & Bar Restaurant Review: Ella delivers a memorable dining experience with its professional service, classy design and inventive, high-end menu. The multi-million dollar design is evident in the white floor-length draperies that flow throughout and the imported, colorful wooden shutters that cover the ceiling. Two tables d’hôte provide front-row views of the artistry behind the scenes. The menu is contemporary, with a focus on seasonal, local ingredients. The menu includes selections from the cold bar, small plates, salads, vegetables, pasta, fish and meat, allowing diners to mix-and-match. Starters include pan-roasted white prawns with garlic-shallot butter and braised lamb flatbread. Sonoma duck breast with roasted pears, slow-roasted beef tenderloin and chicken breast with a ragoût of butter beans are entrées. Desserts are just as enticing, such as the maple crème blintzes with bacon-praline ice cream and chocolate semifreddo with banana mousse.
