2-Year anniversary celebrations @ Ella


'Twas just about two years ago that Ella Dining Room & Bar (1131 K St.; 916-443-3772) opened its doors. And now, the Selland family wants the hungry Sacramento masses to celebrate with them. So the restaurateurs have put together a special anniversary menu which runs next Tuesday through Saturday. Also look for 1/2 off prices on "Ella Signature Cocktails" next Tuesday, the restaurant's official two year anniversary.

For those who haven't dined lately at Ella, annivesary week is a good chance to sample from the new executive chef, Kelly McCown. The overall food style has been tweaked slightly, with more of an emphasis on seasonal ingredients and thoughtfulness toward food and wine pairings. If the rock shrimp with watermelon salad is still on the menu, go for that and a glass of gruner veltliner to see what I mean.

Or you could just try the anniversary prix fixe menu, which costs $50 per person for three courses and dessert. Here's what chef McCown will be serving:

Salad of Maine Lobster
Creamy Hazelnut Vinaigrette, Pickled Celery Root,
Poached Egg and Applewood Smoked Bacon

Wild and Tame Mushroom Canneloni

Fromage Blanc and Parmesan Cream
Braised Beef Short Ribs

Creamed Bloomsdale Spinach, Truffle Sauce
"Gratin" of Early Fall Turnips

Maple Crème Brulee Tarte
Chocolate Ice Cream and Vanilla Sauce
