So, this past Monday I traveled to NYC with my best friend, Rachel, to swap branding sessions with a fellow photographer. While I will have more on that soon, first I wanted to share with everyone this cute restaurant: Ella Kitchen & Bar @ 249 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023.
We were in the car for 4.5 hours. 2.5 in driving to get to the city, and 2 in looking for parking. Yes. 2 hours. To find parking. I was going out of my mind!! FINALLY we found something, and guess what...It was FREE! So we gathered our belongings and set out to find a restroom and lunch. We ended up with brunch. Rachel and I both ordered the Egg and Cheese Croissants. They were amazing, and even came with fries and a salad.
This establishment was soooo cozy! I sat on an elevated bench decorated with little pillows on the back wall. (I wish I took a photo of that too.) It has a Latin and Mediterranean atmosphere and menu, with vegan options to boot. The dining room wall was decorated with an array of mirrors in various shapes and sizes:
So, basically, if you are on the west side of Central Park and in need of some light, affordable fare, stop in! The waitstaff was courteous and prompt and the food was great. Don't pass this eatery up, and look for this entrance in the midst of your usual city storefronts:
