Ella receives nod for its interior design

By Chris Macias

Just in time for Midtown Cocktail Week, the folks at Ella Dining Room & Bar are no doubt saying "cheers!" for the restaurant's interior design receiving kudos. Fast Company magazine's design blog recently featured Ella as one of "the world's most innovative restaurant interiors." The downtown restaurant shared recognition with some pretty snazzy restaurants, including Textile Pavilion of Luxembourg and Paris' Nomiya/Palais de Tokyo. Ella, which was designed by UXUS of Amsterdam, was noted for "reclaimed wood stools and hundreds of Hungarian farmhouse shutters (which) accent an otherwise steely interior, giving the restaurant a look of 'rustic luxury.'" You can see these and other restaurants in the book, "Eat Out!: Restaurant Design and Food Experiences."

Come check out this world class interior tonight from 9 p.m. - 11 p.m. as Ella hosts three satellite bars and "bar bites" to celebrate Midtown Cocktail Week. For more information:
