Exquisite Dining at Ellina
Ellina is one of the newer restaurants in town so catch it before it gets too popular and you can’t get a reservation. Located on the Hyman Avenue walking mall, next to Moncler, tucked downstairs. Their menu has an Italian influence with fresh food elegantly prepared. Start with the Braised Artichoke Heart Bruschetta or the Ahi Tuna Tartare, which are patron’s favorites and then move on to the entrée. The pastas are homemade and you can taste the homemade flavor. The Pepper Fettuccini, a Carbonara dish with pancetta and a poached egg is one of my personal favorites. To round out your meal, Jill, the sommelier, will help you pick out an excellent wine pairing from their extensive wine list that has received numerous accolades. This is an excellent choice.
