PLANNING INFORMATION

Ella Dining Room and Bar menus are crafted with the ideal of a convivial “family style” tasting menu in mind. This concept, where larger plates and platter are presented to the table and shared among guests, allows your party to experience more of our menu than traditional dining. Sharing a meal “family style” promotes social interaction and allows guest to participate in the feeling of eating at the Selland Family table. Peruse the menus to create your party’s shared dining experience.
